Vocational Skills

vocationalSkills banner

As pupils progress into years 10 and 11, they begin courses in vocational studies. The aim here is to develop the types of skills, knowledge and understanding that may be useful either in employment in trades and services after school or college or, just as important, DIY skills that help to save money and bring creative satisfaction.

To do this the school has made a significant investment in creating the right type of environment where pupils can make choices that are personalised, realistic and challenging.

Current courses available are in

  • Food & Hospitality
  • Construction
  • Painting and Decorating
  • Gardening
  • Vehicle Mechanics


All courses are taught to exam standard, which means that pupils who wish to pursue any of these subjects further will already have a solid grounding for future success.
