Spending Statement

We have used our funds to support our learners using several strategies. Just under 30% of students in the Sixth Form would be classified as economically disadvantaged.  We have used the funding to provide small group tuition in English, maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted. We are also investing in additional tuition to be offered to students as they prepare for their exams and to compensate for the disruption to learning over the last year. We recognise the knowledge deficits that learners will face as they apply for sixth form in 2021 and the additional support that they will need.
