How is study divided?

Years 10 and 11 – a combination of academic and technical learning

Students will gain up to nine GCSEs and three technical awards.

Young people who join us at 14 will study GCSEs for 60% of their timetable.
For the remaining 40% they’ll be working with local employers on technical projects using industry standard equipment within our Design, Build and
Innovate programmes.

 

Years 12 and 13 – technical qualifications combined with A Levels

Students will gain up to four A Levels and a technical extended diploma.

Young people who join us at 16 will select one of our Design, Build or Innovate pathways for 60% of their timetable. For Level 3 students this will include some core Mathematics and an extended project. For the remainder of the timetable they will select from a number of additional A Levels. Exceptional students could achieve the equivalent of up to six A Levels!

Level 2 students will improve their GCSE grades in English Language and Mathematics if they need to, and supplement this with Level 2 technical qualifications in design, construction and digital fields.

 

All students

Students will also take part in enrichment activities that encourage interests beyond the normal WMCUTC curriculum – this can include sport and outdoor activities, voluntary and charity work, art, music and creative activities, and can also include projects and school competitions.
