Qualifications and Accreditation


Exams and Qualifications

We believe that every child has the potential to achieve qualifications that best suit their ability therefore we offer a range of qualifications. We invest time in determining the best qualification for each child. We currently use AQA and Edexel exam boards for GCSEs, Entry Levels 1, 2 and 3, and Functional skills levels 1, 2 and 3.

All of our pupils work towards AQA unit awards. The Unit Award Scheme (UAS) is a unique recording of achievement scheme, rather than a qualification, AQA unit awards offer learners the opportunity to have their achievements formally recognised with a certificate each time a short unit of learning is successfully completed. 

The AQA Unit Award Scheme is invaluable as it is an important pathway for our pupils to receive accreditation for their achievements. It provides a wide range of units which are differentiated, making accreditation accessible to all pupils regardless of their ability. Furthermore, through allowing amendments and writing our own units, we are able to expand and customise units to our pupil's individual learning interests and needs.
