All students will study for the Welsh Baccalaureate based on the Skills Challenge Certificate, which will be graded, and Supporting Qualifications. The focus of the Skills Challenge Certificate will be on the essential and employability skills i.e. Communication, Numeracy, Digital Literacy, Planning and Organisation, Creativity and Innovation, Critical Thinking and Problem Solving, and Personal Effectiveness.

The qualification will develop the skills required by young people in their future lives and these skills will be developed and assessed through an Individual Project and three Challenges.

In Year 12 most students will study three subjects at Advanced Subsidiary and continue these to Advanced Level. Students may also resit GCSE subjects in order to obtain a higher grade. Students wishes to study 2 or more A level courses must attain at least 4 GCSE passes at grades A* - C.

We are proud of our new custom built resource centre for pupils in year 12 and 13 which includes;

  • Study room with I.T facilities.

  • Presentation suite with interactive capabilities.

  • Social area with panoramic views of the Preseli mountains.
