Charity Quiz Night!

We had a very successful quiz night at JCA run by Rebecca Dudley who is raising £2015 for 2015 for Mental Health Research UK! A fantastic turn out and a really well organised event by Becky. The quiz night raised over £80 - a really great start to her fundraising year.

If you wish to donate, Becky will be doing a huge amount of things this year that you can support, including a year long dryathlon when she turns 18. She will also be wearing a unicorn onesie on the first day of every month, running a marathon with a Winnie the Pooh twist, a sponsored silence plus more still to be announced!

Please sponsor her for her years attempts, as well as her individual ones!

Curriculum 2015/16 Educating a city: widening our curriculum offer

We want to make CLF Post 16 as accessible as we can for our students. Our curriculum offer therefore needs to widen. We are planning to run additional courses this year, such as AS Applied Law, a new STEM course and a new Drama and Music School. If staff are interested and have ideas about running new courses, please contact
