You should only send your child to school 
if you have to, because your work is
critical to our COVID-19 response.

 

If you are able to keep your child at home, you should.

Key Stage 5

We believe that there are a number of features which make the Stella Smedley Post 16 Centre a unique and rewarding place to study. 

Our post 16 centre offers a personalised experience for all of our students whilst maintaining a broad and balanced curriculum offer. We are able to provide a comprehensive number of Level 3 qualifications for students on both academic and vocational pathways. 

There is a selection of over 20 different subject choices for our students, which bears comparison with any post 16 provider in the area.

We recognise the importance placed on active learning and therefore often have small class sizes to afford staff the ability to nurture yet challenge each individual student. We have a strong belief in enrichment activities and in an effective pastoral care system to ensure that we are advancing the moral, social and personal development of all our students.
