In the Sixth Form we offer the opportunity to study for a BTEC  in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship.

Formally recognised by universities as an A Level equivalent, this lively and future-facing course allows pupils to learn over two years about the skills and mindset of modern entrepreneurship, through a combination of externally assessed work and extended project work completed in class.

The syllabus places a particular emphasis on real-world engagement with the entrepreneurial sector, and offers students an exciting and valuable opportunity to broaden their intellectual and professional horizons during their Sixth Form years.
