St Mary’s and the 16-19 Study Programme
All 16 to 19 students who study level 3 qualifications are given the opportunity to take a study programme which reflects their prior attainment, education and career goals.
Study programmes include substantial academic qualifications; non-qualification activities including meaningful weekly work experience or physical education and Core Religious Studies for students not undertaking a qualification in Religious Studies; and the study of English and maths where students do not hold a GCSE graded 4 or above in these subjects. Students with a level 4 pass in English or Maths are given the opportunity to re-sit to gain a level 5 pass.
Study programmes are focussed on progression to the next level of education, a traineeship or apprenticeship or other employment.
Funding is on a per student, not per qualification basis.
