  • 8 taught hours per course (per fortnight) for the majority of level 3 courses.
  • Re-sitting GCSE English or maths for those who have achieved below a grade 4 in either subject, as well as the option to re-sit for those who achieved a grade 4.

  • A formal enrichment programme offering a range of qualification and non-qualification activities.
  • Dedicated private study periods to support independent completion of home learning and revision materials and activities.
