This is an introductory course for those who aren’t quite ready to study on an A Level or Foundation course. It offers students the opportunity to study and improve their English whilst doing some academic preparation. All students will study Maths and can also choose from science, business or art depending on their preference.

There are 3 Pathways available. Students can choose the following options

  • Art (Fine Art and Textiles or Photography)
  • Business (Business Studies and Economics)
