" Students develop excellent employability skills through a broad range of enrichment activities, work-related activities and work experience."

Ofsted report, January 2017

We offer a diverse range of activities and exciting CV building opportunities, some of which enable students to gain useful qualifications and skills, develop new hobbies, or pursue a current interest. These additional experiences develop students as individuals and can make a CV stand out. They are extremely valuable when applying to Higher Education establishments or for apprenticeships and employment.
