LEAP Sixth Form College

LEAP Sixth Form College provides a stimulating, vibrant, friendly and supportive setting in which students can continue their academic education beyond Year 11. LEAP offers a wide range of academic and vocational provisions, which we also compliment with a varied and interesting range of work experience and apprenticeship opportunities.

We offer a combination of excellent teaching, professional advice and first-class pastoral care to ensure that students have every opportunity to develop their potential to the full.

Support through Mentoring

All students are allocated a keyworker who is responsible for mentoring, coaching and transition work into employment or further education.

In LEAP Sixth Form you will need to re-sit your English and Maths GCSEs, study one option subject and attend one work experience opportunity.
