Bursary Payments for Post 16 students

  • Live in a household with income below £25,000 or
  • Need one off financial support and live in a household with income below £36,000

Attendance marks and concerns in SIMS

Please DO NOT use numbers to record attendance for Post 16 lessons as these will not count towards their attendance.

Don't forget to add any concerns or achievements to the behaviour records in SIMs - selecting type "P16 Cause for concern".

Year 11 Guidance meetings

Year 11 students have been given a guidance meeting by CLF Post 16 to explore options for next year. There is a sheet on display in the staff room giving details of students who are considering staying for CLF Post 16 and the options they are interested in studying. Please encourage students to discuss their options and send them to see Michelle or Ms Suart with any questions.

There are a number of vocational level 2/3 pathways next year which may be suitable for students who don't achieve 5 C grade GCSE/ BTEC passes. It is hoped we can offer: Media and Photography (Boomsatsuma), Sport and Elite Performance, Performing Arts,Childcare, Early Years and Health & Social Care, Art and Design and Catering.

There are a small number of students still to have a meeting and we will be catching up with them next week.

Please note that no decisions have been made as at where subjects will be taught and the matrix will most likely change as we pull together the applications from across the CLF.


Deadline for marksheets will be noon on 2 March.

Mock exam results will be given out at parent's evening.
