As young people move into years 10 and 11, they start to learn skills they can use in employment and in later life, with taster sessions in year 9 to help them recognise which vocational subjects they wish to study at Key Stage 4. This is undertaken at the school’s Copperthwaite Centre. Through this facility we offer:



Vehicle Mechanics


Duke of Edinburgh

Catering & Hospitality


Creative Media

These subjects are all studied to exam level; either GCSE, Pathways Entry Level, or Laser Learning.
