The school has a very well-established partnership with Ossett Academy for the provision of Post 16 learning. It is this partnership that has created the opportunity for the school to develop its own sixth form, which officially started in September 2015. In addition, we have worked with Wakefield College over the past 2 years to strengthen our transition arrangements and this has resulted in a new one year course, called The Bridge. Students are enrolled as college learners and spend 2 days per week in College and 3 days at Highfield. This has been very well received within the local authority, by students and parents, and has been incredibly successful in its first year. There is real potential for this provision to expand and grow.
