Post 16 Curriculum Intent

Outwood Grange Academies Trust is committed to raising standards for all children and our Post 16 provision plays a crucial role within this.

Across our Trust students embrace a broad and challenging curriculum that combines A-level and Level 3 BTEC qualifications; alongside these many of our students complete the highly regarded Extended Project Qualification.

Our Post 16 provision gives students the opportunity to engage in a wide range of extra-curricular activities including debating teams, the Duke of Edinburgh Award and many more subject specific enrichments.

As a Trust we are determined to raise the aspirations of the communities we work in and as such we offer a comprehensive programme to any student planning to attend an Oxbridge or Russell Group university; symposium lectures, university experiences and engagement with the Social Mobility Foundation and the Sutton Trust all help support our students as they plan their next step.

Furthermore we recognise that in an increasingly competitive and global employment market it is essential that our students are supported in locating and applying for higher level apprenticeships with some of the world’s leading companies; working with Careers Inc (our independent careers education, information, advice and guidance partners), all of our Post 16 students complete a work experience placement and receive personalised and bespoke advice throughout their Post 16 journey.

We utilise what works for our students in Key Stages 3 and 4 and ensure our robust tracking and intervention model underpins excellent outcomes at Key Stage 5 as well.

Post 16 provision across Outwood Grange Academies Trust helps young adults forge their future life chances and, ultimately, equip the communities in which we work with the talent and opportunities required to help enable their growth and regeneration.
