Try as we might, sometimes we can't fit all of your preferred subjects together on your timetable.  In order that you don't miss out on studying a subject that you'll love, we are part of an informal partnership with Maria Fidelis Catholic School FCJ and Westminster Kingsway College.  This means that you may be able to study a course with one of those institutions if we can't offer it.
