Schools in the Wellsway Multi Academy Trust offer fantastic options for students aged 16 to 18.
The sixth form at Wellsway School is one of the largest in the West of England and attracts an increasing number of entrants from other schools as well as welcoming back its own students after GCSEs. Its size means it can offer an extensive range of courses that enable young people to follow their aspirations and exceed expectations.
Wellsway works in collaboration with the sixth forms at SBL Academy and the trust’s two smaller specialist schools, IKB Academy and The Bath Studio School. This enables it to provide a more exciting and comprehensive offer  through a mix of broad-based and specialist pathways..
IKB, which has a science and engineering specialism, saw its first group of students off to university this month after highly successful A-level and Btec results.
Bath Studio, which has been open three years and specialises in creative and digital media, has achieved similar success.
The two specialist schools are building strong links within their sectors, providing real-world work experience for students. This gives sixth-formers an advantage when competing for apprenticeships or employment as well as higher education places.
Wellsway MAT is an inclusive trust and recognises that achievement can come in many forms, not simply exam results.
The sixth forms offer a host of opportunities for students within and outside lessons, including sports, arts, music and  volunteering. This enables young people to assume responsibility, build relationships and develop confidence for their next steps in life.
A key feature is the extremely strong pastoral support and personalised career guidance for every individual.
