Able & Gifted
We encourage all Sixth Formers to stretch and challenge themselves academically and personally.
We provide a range of extra qualifications and experiences to allow students to further themselves in preparation for university and/or employment.
East Lancashire Scholars
A partnership between Lancaster University and the Villiers Park Educational Trust to help academically able students from disadvantaged backgrounds to aspire to join leading universities.
A social network site developed by the University of Warwick specifically for able and talented young people.
The Future Oxbridge Scholar’s Programme
A full programme to assist academically-talented students interested in applying to Oxford or Cambridge Universities. This provides a range of stretch and challenge activities to assist students in developing the intellectual, practical and personal skills and knowledge they will need to be accepted for an Oxbridge college.
Students looking to improve upon their current performance and grades can attend weekly additional classes from 3.30pm - 5.00pm to help consolidate their understanding of subjects and extend their knowledge of specific topics.
Extended Project Qualification
A free standing qualification highly valued by universities. It is worth up to 28 UCAS points and is equivalent to half an A Level. The EPQ provides students with the opportunity to develop an individual research paper with one-to-one support from a member of staff.
