Post-16

I am proud of the Post 16 provision at Garforth Academy. Our philosophy is very simple: we believe that our main purpose is to provide all of our students with the skills and qualifications to ensure they thrive in later life. I firmly believe that we bridge the gap between the world of school and worlds of employment or Higher Education.

By constantly striving to improve exam results we give our students the best opportunities to go to the best universities, apprenticeships or employment. We do this by delivering outstanding classroom teaching with support in all other key areas such as pastoral care, careers support and enrichment.

Outstanding exam results alone will not guarantee each of our students success. We want our students to leave us as respectful, well rounded individuals and whilst we will push every student to ensure they achieve their absolute best academically, we also recognise the need for students to enjoy their learning, make new friends and be given access to new opportunities. Garforth is a brilliant place to study - I hope you can join us and add your part to our thriving Academy.
