Brooke Weston Academy and Corby Technical School are consulting on collaborating over their Sixth Form provisions to offer a range of courses across their two sites as part of a single Sixth Form offer.
The scheme would mean that students from both schools, as well as successful external applicants, will be able to access a new suite of qualifications, tailored to their aspirations and abilities, in academic, applied and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects.
Lessons, pastoral support and specialist advice will be delivered at both schools. Students will be based full time at one or other of the sites depending on their course choices. All students will meet regularly for enrichment activities, careers advice, guest speaker events and assemblies. The small existing Sixth Form at Corby Technical School will close, and students will be able to join the one led by Brooke Weston Academy.
The proposed change would take place from September 2021, meaning that students currently in Year 10 and below in both schools will be able to take advantage of the enhanced curriculum. The existing high-quality programmes in both schools will remain in place until then.
