The Active Pathway

This pathway offers an exciting opportunity to experience learning by a very different route to that of the traditional curriculum. The course is very much practically based. Students attend all their lessons as a group in a maximum class size of fifteen. Besides the opportunity to gain the equivalent of 5 GCSEs including English, Mathematics and Science, students are able to study an ASDAN award recognised by both employers and further education establishments.More information on the Active Pathway is in our Downloads area.
