Y12 and Y13 Curriculum

At Post 16 we will offer students a choice of flexible pathways. The Academy will work with students to select the most appropriate pathway for them, based on their performance at GCSE and their career aspirations.

The Level 3 Programme

The majority of post 16 students at the Academy will follow a Level 3 programme, which means they will have passed a minimum of 5 GCSEs, including English and Maths, at grades A* to C.

The 3 pathways below are indicative of our flexible approach to meeting the needs and aspirations of students.

Pathway A: For students wishing to study engineering at university or pursue an advanced apprenticeship. All students will study a smallerĀ engineering qualification and up to 3 A-levels.

Pathway B: For learners wishing to study engineering combined with another subject at university, pursue an apprenticeship or go into Further Education. On this pathway the students will study a largerĀ engineering qualification and up toĀ 1 A-level.

Pathway C: This route is for students who want to follow an A-level only programme, with a focus on STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

  • Art & Design
