To support pupils in making their choices we:

  •  Produce a comprehensive booklet which details all our courses.

  • Hold a Parents Evening where pupils and parents can attend together.
  • Present information to pupils in a number of assemblies.
  • Arrange 1:1 meetings with senior staff so pupils can be given advice.
