What happens after Year 11?

The Government have now raised the participation age, meaning that students are required to remain in full time education until, at least, their 18th birthday. Full time education does not necessarily mean studying A-Levels 5 days per week – it can include Apprenticeships, Traineeships or BTEC College courses. Below are just some ideas of nearby colleges. Please speak to Mrs Cowper for more information.
