We offer a coherent two-year programme of learning which is tailored to meet individual needs. The context for learning emphasises a scientific, technological, and business focus with a broad range of areas that may be studied, including:
- Technologies (Including Engineering, Design Technology, Art and Design and ICT)
- Performance Arts
- Modern Foreign Languages
- Physical Education
You will have the opportunity to take part in enrichment activities such as Young Enterprise and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, Sport, Performing Arts and International Visits.
Tutor groups are ‘vertical’ groups, comprised of approximately 16 students of all ages, from each of Years 7 through to 13. Each group has a ‘buddy group’ sharing the same base, so there will be several students from your year group in each pair.
Your examination success is particularly important as it opens the doors for you into Higher Education and high quality opportunities in the work place. Landau Forte College Derby has a sustained record of achievement with overall pass rates of students being consistently high.
A curriculum pathway is designed with you, to support your progression into Higher Education or directly into employment and apprenticeships. The range of courses offered will enable a flexible approach to gaining your qualifications with AS/A2 Level and BTEC qualifications available.
For students who will be completing Year 13 in 2017, we have chosen, in 2016, to offer the AS examination(s) in both reformed and unreformed A Level subjects; this will allow us to gain an overview of the impact of A Level reform, and will allow students to benchmark their performance in both reformed and unreformed A Level subjects.
