All Year 13s were supported in their university and apprenticeship applications by Central Futures, a dedicated team of professionals who assist students in securing a place in higher education, apprenticeship or employment upon leaving school. Central Futures work with ‘The Key Project’, a partnership between the school, the international law firm Slaughter and May, and The Access Project charity. The students are provided with one- to-one tutoring for their subjects and are supported in the application process throughout the academic year.

Headteacher Jamie Brownhill said, “We are delighted with the students’ exam outcomes and the university and apprenticeship placements they have secured. These are the result of the hard work of the students and the support they have received from our skilled and committed group of teachers”
