Final Thoughts

Choosing a post 16 programme of study is a big decision which to a large extent will affect your life in terms of further and higher education and employment.

It is therefore important that you seek good guidance and advice so that you can make the right choices.

It is also important that you achieve good grades so that final push towards your GCSE exams is vital.  It will be hard work but it will be worthwhile.

Finally, good luck in your GCSE exams and we hope you’ll be joining us in September.
