Post-16 Funding

Post 16 students study a range of A level, Level 3 Btec and Level 2 courses. All students are enrolled onto a study programme that meets the minimum 540 Guided Learning Hours, with timetabled Maths and English GCSE classes for those who do not yet have a level 4 pass. Study programmes are tailored to suit students’ career or further education aspirations, and all are guided through a year 11 Careers and Guidance meeting with a  Careers Adviser, as well as individual meetings regarding course choices with members of the Senior Leadership Team, after they receive their GCSE results. Academic study is complemented with fortnightly PSHE lessons, and an Enrichment programme where students undertake a number of support roles throughout the school. All students complete a week of meaningful work experience during year 12.


The 16-19 Tuition Fund Statement

Cornwallis Academy is dedicated to recovering lost curriculum time for students of all Key Stages. 

At Key Stage 5, we plan to deliver the following interventions supported by the 16-19 tuition fund:

Qualified teachers and support staff will deliver after school support classes in English and Maths for students who have not yet achieved a grade 5. If demand is too great and exceeds the prescribed group numbers, priority will be given to students who have not yet achieved a grade 4. 

One to one sessions may be added for priority students who have not achieved a grade 4, and this will be added as a ‘period 6’ to their timetables. 

A ‘rolling’ two week timetable will provide after school support sessions for all KS5 subjects. These sessions will be run by KS5 specialists. Additional sessions are also being designed for delivery over the half term break.

We plan to utilise additional resources, such as the purchase of maths and English revision guides for all students without a grade 4 pass in English and/or maths. Online resources such as ‘maths watch’ will also be used, while ‘The online national tutoring service’ is also under consideration.

Funding will be used to pay qualified staff, and where necessary, to fund extra resources.
