CLF+ & Enrichment Overview

CLF Post 16 goes beyond offering excellent curriculum opportunities and high quality Teaching & Learning.

CLF+ is a compulsory enrichment programme that offers students a vast range of opportunities to broaden their experiences with us and provide them with the best possible chances of success when applying for University, an apprenticeship, gap year or job.  It runs every Friday afternoon in a student's home academy and every Wednesday afternoon accross the CLF, when most students have no taught sessions.  Some of the enrichment opportunities offer qualifications, and we are continually expanding our provision.  Below is a list of the opportunities that students can get involved in.
