Creative design pathway

Level 2 Btec creative digital design, graphic design, photography

game design pathway

Level 2 Btec game design, digital technologies, computer sciences

TV & FIlm

The Above subjects are further supported with weekly timetabled reading and physical education studies

The curriculum is designed to provide breadth & depth in the specialist areas that build upon a strong foundation of core studies. The combination of specialist subject qualifications gives students a level of skill to a greater depth than can be experienced in a traditional option choice setting. This suite of qualifications enables students to progress through to our own specialist 6th form studies or other areas of Level 3 study.
