The Leigh Academy



Unsure what courses you want to study Post 16?
Unclear about the different study pathways?
Want to find out more information about the International Baccalaureate Careers Programme or the IB diplomas?

Then attend our Post 16 “Choices and Pathways” Surgery

This is an opportunity for students to experience some of the new subjects first hand by attending taster lessons and also for students and parents to speak to subject teachers, the Director of Post 16 and Senior Leaders about the choices and pathways available to them. We will be on hand to support you through the application process and give you guidance on suitable pathways/options in Post 16 to complement your academic strengths and future aspirations.
