Joining the Beckfoot Trust has given our school exciting opportunities to ensure that we further develop our successful Post 16 provision. This will ensure that we are able to meet the needs of our students in this ever-changing environment. It is my view that education should be exciting and challenging, instilling a ‘love of learning’ that allows our students in Post 16 to reach their full potential. I also believe it is essential that Post 16 students take ownership and responsibility for their own learning; that they are encouraged to be active learners and take every opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding. As a school, we support our students in developing these skills, enabling them to successfully pass examinations.
Students are encouraged to supplement their academic studies with various enrichment opportunities, such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and the Progression Module, which are very attractive to both employers and universities.
