Higher Education & Employer partnerships


The Secondary FOCUS Programme is a structured series of workshops for Years 7-13. The programme involves two workshops per year, focused on developing key skills and providing information and advice on future options. These workshops are designed to relate to a particular stage of students’ learning and are planned so as not to disrupt preparation for exams. For example, students in Year 7 will think about taking responsibility for their own future and how to adapt to the changing workload, whereas Year 11 students work to understand how their post-16 options impact on future education and career opportunities.
