Dear Y11 students (copied to Y11 parents)

As you are already aware, Y11 students have a choice between several options for Y12 & 13. One of these options is to study the Career-related Programme (CP) to combine an academic aspect (2 to 4 Diploma subjects) and a more vocational aspect (via one of our partner-providers).

DC is offering 4 options for our current Y11 cohort. Interested students are invited to attend a sample lesson with one (or several) of our partner schools.

It is a great opportunity to understand better what these partner-providers are likely to bring to your last two years of high school.
