On Thursday 15th November, Greenacre Academy and Walderslade Girls’ School hosted our annual PGW (Partnership of Greenacre and Walderslade) Open Evening. The evening was a tremendous success – so much so that we have had a record breaking number of applications this year. Should you have a son/ward in Year 11, and you were not able to attend the Open Evening, please see below for a brief outline of what PGW Sixth offers, and how your son/ward can apply:
PGW is one of the largest Sixth Forms in Medway – a true testament to our success! At PGW, we pride ourselves on recognising our learners as young adults. PGW Sixth Form aspires to deliver an exemplary learning experience to our students through a nurtured atmosphere of both cooperation and mutual respect. Ultimately, our main aim is to ensure that all PGW students leave us with the qualifications, knowledge, and personal attributes needed to succeed in their desired, future path – whatever that may be: higher education, an apprenticeship, or the world of work.
PGW Sixth Form is the perfect progression route for students to complete: academic, applied general, and technical level vocational courses. We offer courses at Level 3 (A Level/BTEC equivalent) and Level 2 (GCSE equivalent) in order to suit all skills and abilities. Students are set challenging targets and encouraged to work independently, which yields ‘strong progress,’ (Ofsted, May 2018). We also recognise the importance of students having a further opportunity to obtain Level 4 grades in English Language and Mathematics GCSEs (should students not have obtained these results in Year 11) and as such, factor ‘re-sit lessons’ (should they be required) onto students’ timetables, ‘Those students who retake GCSEs in English and Mathematics achieve above-average outcomes,’ (Ofsted, May 2018).
Through our ‘Skills for Life’ strategy, we aim to be the first choice for employers when they look to recruit, as well as ensuring that those who wish to follow an academic path in further education are given comprehensive advice and support.
