Further Education Colleges
We have excellent links with KGV College, Southport College and Hugh Baird College. In Key Stage 4 all students have the opportunity to go to these colleges to meet students already on courses there and to talk to tutors, helping them to make important decisions about their future.
The majority of our students go on to further their education at one of these colleges and are highly successful.
We have extended our links with Higher Education, particularly Liverpool University, Lancaster University, Liverpool Hope, Edge Hill and the University of Central Lancashire. Activities have included an Introduction to Higher Education for Parents, and a Higher Education
Summer School for some of our students.
This takes place in Year 10 when students go out into the workplace to gain a valuable insight and experience in a job they are interested in. Placements can be arranged in almost any field of work and there are plenty of opportunities for developing new skills.
The placement involves a mock interview with an employer.
We have very successful links with our feeder primary schools. Our drama specialist visits these schools on a regular basis to support the Key Stage 2 curriculum and children visit our school for various activities.
We find that this helps to make the transition from primary to secondary school much easier for the children as they become more familiar with their new school.
Every year group adopts a charity and they are encouraged to take part in fund raising activities.
