If students wish to work towards a qualification in Sport then they should choose BTEC Sport as one of their choices.

Whilst we will endeavour to ensure students study their preferred choices we ask that all students put down additional choices in the event that we cannot timetable their preferred options.

Please refer to the guidance in the subject choices booklet or watch the subject promotional videos in this IAG section. Students can also speak to their subject teachers in the Academy. If you have further questions after having explored these options, please complete the Microsoft Form and a member of the curriculum team will either:
