Degree apprenticeships are similar to higher apprenticeships, but differ in that they provide an opportunity to gain a full bachelor’s degree (Level 6) or master’s degree (Level 7)
Designed in partnership with employers, part-time study takes place at a university or college, with the rest of your time being with your employer

To find out more and meet local and national companies who are offering degree apprenticeships, don’t miss our Careers & Degree Apprenticeship Fair on Weds 24th January (open to the public 4.30-7.00pm)

Welcome

Nicki Edwards, Headteacher

We are very proud of our school which attracts students from around North and West Dorset as well as South Somerset. The School became an academy on 1 August 2012. We are a Church of England School, but as the secondary school for all children, our religious character is highly inclusive, embracing those of all faiths and of no faith.
