Membership of the East Dacorum Consortium provides the framework for our provision at 16+. The Consortium rationale is to provide the range of courses on multiple sites. The school has made a strong contribution to the Consortium provision at both Level 3 ie AS/A Level or equivalent, and provision at Level 2.
Courses offered across the consortium at both Level 2 and 3 can be found in the Post 16 prospectus
