We are proud to offer a thriving ambassador programme and an exciting range of trips each year – for example this year included a day trip to Barcelona, various London trips, including the Shard and the Tower of London, along with a four day trip to New York City (which included visits to the New York stock exchange, Empire State Building, Times Square, Ground Zero site, Statue of Liberty, Madison Square Gardens to watch an NBA basketball game, the Brooklyn Bridge, a Broadway show, a bike ride through Central Park and a shopping trip to Macy’s).  

Student support

Students are extremely well supported through their studies in sixth form and also offered a range of events and activities to support their progression plans into higher education, apprenticeships or employment, as well as support for their general wellbeing. Much of this is covered within our Skills4Life programme, which every student will engage in for one period a week.
