KEY STAGE 5


We are very pleased to be able to offer a wide range of courses to students in Years 12 and 13. We believe we offer a range of courses that are suitable for all different styles of learning and more importantly a range of courses that give students the best opportunities to undertake a career in the ever changing fields of ICT and Media.



The BTEC Extended Certificate course in ICT offers a more vocational route for students wishing to still study ICT.  The course consists of three mandatory units and one optional unit and is equivalent to one A Level with the same UCAS points. Students can expect to work on a range of products such as the development of websites and database systems.  They are also expected to learn a range of theory, exploring the more advanced elements of ICT.



The OCR Level 3 Cambridge Technical Extended Certificate in Digital Media aims to equip students with the skills needed to work toward a career in Media. The course consists of three mandatory units and two optional units and is equivalent to one A Level with the same UCAS points. Students can expect to develop skills in video production, photography, design for printed media and much more.


Both courses at Key Stage 5 consist of external examinations, you will receive feedback on your progress through the courses linked to the grading criteria of the examination board.
