Post-16 Curriculum

Our Post-16 Open Evening is Thursday 26th October 5-7pm

Find out more about our Post-16 provision and how we prepare our students for higher education and careers.

Post-16 Curriculum

Our own school vision for education is that we want to enable all students to succeed and thrive.

This means our students are academically successful and continue into their next phase of education or employment. It also means we create an environment where students and staff can thrive as people, as members of their community and society as a whole. Within our Post-16 curriculum offer, we ensure there is a broad range of subjects on offer that allow students to be fully equipped to progress onto Higher Education, apprenticeships or employment beyond the age of 18.

Subject Blocks 2024/25

This table applies for the academic year 2024/25 only.
At JTFS we listen to the requests of our applicants, then we design our option blocks to fit.

This means that at JTFS our Post-16 students are more likely to get the combination of choices they want.

Because of this, the option blocks will change yearly.
This table shows the option blocks for the year starting in September 2024.

For students who have already received an offer of a place, or for students who wish to apply,
You may choose one course option from each of three blocks. The remaining block will automatically be allocated as Private Study time.
