Graduate Programmes

All students at Christ The King join one of our Graduate Programmes.

Each Graduate Programme has been designed to meet the needs of students so that progression onto university, employment or further training/study is fully supported.

In addition to taking their chosen courses/subjects, students on each Graduate Programme take part in activities, further study opportunities, and receive targeted advice and guidance, which considerably enhances progression and which forms an integral part of the CTK experience.

We offer the following Graduate Programmes:

Advanced Graduate Programme

This programme is aimed at students who have achieved particularly well at GCSE, and helps to prepare them for progression onto highly selective universities or other competitive career paths. It ensures that the high levels of success students have experienced to date continue, and the programme provides an outstanding platform for future achievement.

Extended Graduate Programme

This programme provides stretch and challenge for every student participating in it. Our A Level students are able to develop their skills and interests, be fully supported in making applications to university or further training/study, and to achieve excellent results on their courses/subjects. Students who are particularly gifted at languages can also be part of our International Graduate Programme which provides access to a broader curriculum and helps to develop participants into global citizens.

Professional Graduate Programme

Students taking BTEC Extended Diploma courses have the opportunity to take additional, professional, qualifications which extend interest in the area of study concerned and provide a competitive edge when making university or employment applications. A wide range of industry- related enrichment opportunities also mean that students gain experiences that capture their interest and support their achievement. In some subject areas our Enterprise Graduate Programme is also available. This additional programme supports the professional development of students, and helps to equip them with a range of skills and experiences that are truly exceptional.

Aspiring Graduate Programme

Students taking one year BTEC courses at the college are fully supported in extending their experience and skills development through this exciting programme. All students benefit from wider study opportunities and take part in events and activities which are both engaging and informative. Students taking this programme are encouraged to be aspirational in their thinking, and to aim high with their achievements.
