|16-19 Collaboration in Stafford|
|The Stafford Collegiate|
Welcome to the Stafford Collegiate
Thank you for considering the Stafford Collegiate as the place to continue your education. We believe that we provide the best 16-19 curriculum in the area. The Stafford Collegiate has been working successfully as a partnership of post-16 education providers for several years. It offers an outstanding range of courses at both A Level and BTEC for students from all the Stafford high schools and Stafford College. The goal of the Collegiate is to maximise the opportunities for all 16-19 students in Stafford by ensuring they have access to the broadest possible curriculum.
A unique feature of Stafford Collegiate is that whilst each partner retains its independence, identity and ethos, co-operation takes place where it is clear students will benefit. Students gain the advantage of belonging to an institution which will support you through KS5 and give you all necessary advice, information and guidance, pastoral care, tutorial support and enrichment. Alongside this you can take full advantage of choosing a programme of study for the sixth form from amongst the courses offered at each school, at the Chetwynd Centre and at Stafford College.
It should be recognised that some courses are available at more than one institution. You will normally take a course at your own school or college if it is part of that institution’s curriculum, but you can also take full advantage of opting to follow courses on offer in all partner institutions. This may involve travelling between schools, Chetwynd and College, and to allow this to happen all partners operate a broadly common timetable.
As you will be a Collegiate student, irrespective of which school you attend, there is a common application process, which is completed on-line. Your application form will be pre-populated with your personal details. You will be given a user name and password for access to the application form, and you will be guided through the process at your school. The courses will appear in blocks A-E, as they do in this prospectus.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Collegiate in 2012.
