Atypical Age Range Admission Schools

There are some schools which have atypical admission ages so take pupils at a different age to typical 11-18 secondary schools; information on these schools is shown below; further details are available in the document entitled Other Year 10 Opportunities which can be downloaded below.

The Other Year 10 Opportunities document contains a list of schools within a reasonable travelling distance which you may wish to look in to and consider whether your child would want to apply for a place for September 2018.

You should look at the GCSE curriculum at your childs current school to help consider what the best option is for the next two years of your childs education.
  • University Technical Colleges (UTCs) are set up by universities and businesses and specialise in one or two technical subjects. At GCSE they offer a similar curriculum to a typical 11-18 secondary school, including the basics of English and Maths as well as their specialist subject.
  • Studio Schools are similar to UTCs in that they have employer involvement in the curriculum and focus on developing the skills needed for employment; involving personal coaching and work experience alongside a similar curriculum to a typical 11-18 secondary.

All schools have a statutory duty to secure impartial careers guidance for all Year 8 to Year 13 students to inspire young people to fulfil their potential and to make them aware of all opportunities open to them. We strongly recommend that your child discuss their options with a Careers Adviser in their current school or college.

If you decide that you would like to know more information or apply for a place at any of these schools for your child we suggest you contact them using the information in the document below.
