Angel Hill College is part of Priory School post 16 offer......
SENDAT is pleased to support the expansion of the Priory School Sixth Form. The Sixth Form will now be available on two sites. The Red Pathway offer will continue at Priory School site and the new Green and Blue Pathways offer will be based at our second site called Angel Hill College. Both sites make up the Priory School Sixth Form.
Red Pathway: predominately based at Priory School site. In the main this will be for students following an Entry Level Pathway at Year 11. Courses offered will be from Entry Level 1 through to Level 1/2 based on cohort. Within this, two Pathways for accreditation will remain, an Entry Level 1-2 Pathway and Entry level 3+ Pathway.
Green and Blue Pathways: predominantly based at Angel Hill College site. In the main this will be for students who were following the Green Pathway in Year 11 which is mostly at pre-entry level and their accreditation is from mostly Entry Level 1 and below. From September 2020 all students at Angel Hill College will be on the roll of Priory School. Mrs Killa is the Assistant Headteacher with responsibility for the Sixth Form across both sites.
