College Courses


At the end of Year 11 students have the option of continuing their education at a Further Education College (FE). There are a range of FE providers in the local area and students and parents are encouraged to look at a range of providers and courses if this pathway is of interest.

Many of these FE providers offer courses which are more vocational and combine an element of ongoing work experience. Students may study several different subjects or focus on one particular area of interest.

Links to FE colleges in Hertfordshire are shown below, along with upcoming open day events. Students are strongly encouraged to visit the colleges in person if they are considering this as a post-16 option.
