We have a strong focus on developing students’ employment skills through a range of successful and innovative initiatives, including partnerships with prestigious world class companies in Canary Wharf and the City of London such as KPMG, EY and Thomson Reuters and which offer many of our students valuable work experience. Our business and enterprise courses were rated outstanding by Ofsted, their highest accolade.
87% of our 16-18 year old students progressed to university this year, well above the national average and we are rightly proud of those students who have gone onto well-known London universities including UCL, Kings’ College, Queen Mary, SOAS, and Goldsmiths as well as well respected regional universities including Southampton, Birmingham, Leeds and York amongst many others.
Our results speak for themselves and we have improved considerably over the last four years, with an overall achievement rate of 94% and 100% success in 12 subject areas.
We want to give you the motivation and inspiration to succeed and our website will help you in deciding which courses will get you where you need to go.
I look forward to welcoming you to the next stage of your journey of progression.
