The way we deliver our curriculum helps our students prepare to meet the challenges of adult life with verve and positivity. We have a wide-ranging and stimulating set of academic and vocational subjects delivered by an enthusiastic and dedicated team.
The learning environment is well structured, challenging and supportive. We help students recognise their strengths and build confidence in every subject they study. In Design and Technology we offer specialist areas of study, using the state-of-the-art equipment.

The BTEC is around 80% coursework based and around 20% will be examination. Each BTEC is made up of a number of units. Some units are mandatory and some optional. In order to achieve each unit, your assignments have to show achievement against a set of outcomes.
