My friends Ds who is in year 11 is looking at possibly moving to WBG for A Levels but she was shocked to learn they are offering 65 places. Does this mean that 1/3 of year 11 will not be staying on?
They commit to offering 65 external places. They offer internal candidates a place if they want and qualify for them. Not sure if they have an upper limit on places, but a third of students doing something different does not surprise me. My DS is not there yet but experiences with my DD in WGGS has seen roughly a third leave to take courses elsewhere. Some have been more specialist such as drama or music whereas some don't make the grade and have to leave.
