Dear students and parents,

Welcome to CLF Post 16. At the Cabot Learning Federation we are a diverse community, welcoming and valuing students, parents and staff from all backgrounds and religious traditions. When you join the Cabot Learning Federation you should expect excellence.

Our Post 16 provision provides a wealth of expertise and pathways to help you find your way to a world-class future and chosen career. Our vision is to collaborate for outstanding achievement. We work across six academies to provide a broad curriculum and a multitude of experiences to accentuate students’ experience. Our students travel between the sites developing independence, meeting and working with over 500 Post 16 students. Most academies have been rebuilt providing fantastic facilities for our huge range of courses across our campus. Excellent teaching and learning consistently provides good exam results for our students. The level of personalised care we provide supports students to achieve regardless of their circumstances.

Collaboration for Outstanding Achievement

The CLF holds a well-earned reputation for providing the best education locally. Not only do we train teachers in our teaching school, we provide outstanding leadership where we train head teachers in how to lead schools. You will have access to a range of highly specialist teachers who are very experienced and experts at both teaching their subjects and supporting their students to achieve the highest grades.

Better Prepared for Employment

Our sponsors, Rolls Royce and UWE, offer our students many opportunities. We support students to find placements on high quality internships and work experience so they are able to build the right portfolio of experiences to get ahead and accelerate their progress.

During CLF + time on Wednesday and Friday afternoons, you will have access to Graduate Training Programmes, sports activities, academic courses to develop study skills and employment opportunities in your field. One key element is how we support students to access university routes. Our standards are high at CLF; we will support students to achieve the very best.

Achieve Excellence

At CLF Post 16 students will get the chance to grow as people, meet friends who they keep for life and they’ll work with a team of people who know how to support students to achieve excellence.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Kath Cooper
Principal of Post 16
