The courses that they have enrolled on are diverse, including Engineering, Travel and Tourism, Construction/Multi-skills, Hair and Beauty, Heath and Social Care and one of our students has gone on to study A-Levels at a local sixth form. We are proud of our academy leavers in 2018 and wish them all the best in their future endeavours.
