Our smaller selection of courses provides a focused entry into the health science industry and the computer industry.

Enrichment

Keeping with our business driven education, our student will be expected to attend longer days. As a part of this we have made time in our school day for extra curricular activities called enrichment. Find out more about our Enrichment offer here.
