“The attitudes of those students in the school’s sixth form make a positive contribution to the strong ethos of achievement and success in the school” - Ofsted 2015
BTECs are vocational qualifications. They blend academic work with the working world. BTEC qualifications are recognised nationally at higher education institutions and in industry. The qualifications range in levels and offer natural progression along a vocational path, from and to academic qualifications and/or university.
They are run by Edexcel, the UK’s largest examinations body. They are seen as one of the best established vocational qualifications and pathways to employment or further education.
Students studying the BTEC diploma will have the opportunity to gain work experience as well as take part in a range of exciting opportunities (sporting, academic, cultural, voluntary, Duke of Edinburgh Bronze, Silver and Gold and various positions of responsibility) available in the sixth form to supplement the BTEC courses.
