Welcome to Clyst Vale Community College
There are over 180 Post-16 students presently studying at Clyst Vale Community College. Increasingly students are joining us from other schools and colleges, attracted by the individual approach the college prides itself on.
Currently one third of Post-16 students come from other schools. The curriculum, dress code, responsibilities and expectations of maturity mark them out from the rest of the college. They are respected and enjoy privileges not made available to younger students; however, more freedom brings with it responsibilities. Post-16 students are inevitably seen as role models by all other students and are called upon to be ambassadors in their dealings with visitors and in their conduct around and outside the college.
Post-16 students have their own block within the college with a Study Area Café, Careers Centre, and a purpose built ICT suite. Post-16 meet as a whole group for assemblies and tutorials. Both tutor groups and teaching groups are relatively small meaning that students can be individually monitored and counselled. Post-16 students actively consult with the management team responsible for Post-16 students through their own representative body and organise social events for students and staff alike.
The Post-16 curriculum offers a wide range of courses leading to Higher Education and employment. We offer 30 Level 3 AS/A2/BTEC qualifi cations. Students have the advantage of working within an intimate and supportive environment that is also challenging and stimulating. The Post-16 curriculum offers a comprehensive tutorial and enrichment programme enabling our Post-16 students to make the transition from college to the adult world knowing that they have had an excellent start to their future careers.
