Our Honours Programme, in partnership with Lancaster University, offers top achieving sixth formers a head start at university with expert mentoring, personal statement review, summer school places and guaranteed offers.
It stretches, challenges and provides additional support for students who show a flair for a subject and want to extend their knowledge. It helps develop key skills needed for university such as independent learning, research and report writing.
Honours Programme subjects include: Mathematics; Chemistry; Physics; Biology; Modern Languages; Law and History.
Students are identified by their school in Year 10 and nominated for a place. Meetings take place in Year 10 and Year 11.
To be accepted onto our Honours programme, students need to achieve an average GCSE score of at least 7.0 mainly A* and A grades.
Our High Flyers programme for vocational students at Rating Lane and Channelside is due to launch in October. The programme is open to students on Level 3 BTEC and CTEC courses who have higher than average entry grades or demonstrate vocational or practical excellence.
