Foundation Year /Bridge to Level 3
Our foundation year is for students who intend to study at Level 3 but who don’t quite achieve the grades required at the end of year 11.
This one year bridging course gives students the opportunity to gain their Level 2 qualifications which will enable them to progress onto a level 3 programme the year after.
The programme has three key elements:
1. Core GCSEs
You will take any core GCSEs that you need to improve your grade in.
The core GCSEs are:
2. Specialist GCSEs / BTECs
You can add the specialist GCSEs or BTECs that best support your plans for advanced study. You will select these courses from a small selection at enrolment.
3. Level 3 course
Where appropriate, and in accordance with grades achieved at GCSE, we may allow one of your choices to be replaced with a level 3 course.
You will have a personal tutor who monitors your progress and oversees your progression from the bridge course to advanced courses in your second and third year at Wyke.
