Students will have the opportunity to select an additional experience to sit alongside their subject choices. The aim of the Enrichment option is to diversify their skills and increase their opportunities Post-18.
Opportunities within the Enrichment pool will include some AS level qualifications, the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), work experience on a regular basis (essential especially for anyone considering a ‘profession’) and working as an academic mentor within subjects.
English and Maths Resit
For students who have not achieved GCSE English Language and / or GCSE Maths it is compulsory to continue studying these subjects alongside their new subject choices until a grade 4 at GCSE level is achieved. According to their GCSE results, students will begin and complete a programme of study including resit GCSE options and the use of functional skills to build confidence towards achieving the GCSE grade 4.
