Students who take a Level 3 BTEC National in the Sixth Form leave the school with the grades they need to go to university, and the practical skills they need to thrive when they get there.
“It’s a fantastic programme which gives students skills for life and gets them prepared for university. I personally recommend highly to all students."
Mr Nimani, BTEC Sport teacher
