Sarum Academy offers alternative for college students
SARUM Academy has said it can offer an alternative choice to pupils who have been affected by Wiltshire College's decision to cancel its AS and A-level courses.
The Academy, which will be moving into new buildings in September, offers a wide range of A-level, BTEC and vocational courses and says it can provide a local option for sixth form students who would otherwise have to travel up to 60 miles each day to attend colleges in other towns.
“Studying for A-levels is hard for anyone and if you add extensive travel on top of that it can become impossible,” said principal Ruth Johnson.
“We feel we can take some additional pupils as we have a few spaces on some A-level and BTEC courses still available and we urge anyone to get in touch with us to see if we can help."
The academy has about 200 sixth form students and has an extended team to support its growing number of pupils.
"Our emphasis here is not only on academic excellence but also on ensuring we care for the pastoral needs of each pupil as they enter adulthood,” said director of sixth form Dan Jeffries. “From the start of the new term we have a team of four staff dedicated to looking after the sixth form, ensuring they are mentored carefully to help them with their studies and to make the right choices for their futures."
Sarum Academy will be enrolling external applicants in both years 12 and 13 on Thursday, August 22 from 2pm until 5pm.
Any inquiries should be directed to email@example.com.
