All students have an ability. All students gain knowledge. The problem is that students often think that they at a disadvantage to students who have gone to ‘better’ schools.
Our 6th form accelerator helps to bridge the gap. We give students the skills and confidence to realise themselves that there is nothing to stop them from achieving their goals whatever these may be, or whatever their background may be.
Logistics and timing dictate that numbers on each course are limited to 12 student together with two school staff.

Participants gain first hand knowledge of successful organisations and their leaders, learn that many had to cope with rejection, and gain the experience of influencing local decision makers. This combination of knowledge and skills, coupled with having a network dramatically increases participants’ ability to seek out and take advantage of opportunities they create for themselves.

programme to run with 6th Form which has been brilliant. Thank you very much.”
