14-16 Applicants

Courses for 14 - 16 year olds

We offer a limited study programme for students aged 14-16, which complements the school curriculum and provides another option for Year 9 pupils and home educated students. If you are aged 14 - 16 there are two possible routes of study at Strode College.


East Somerset Partnership classes (ESP)

With the support of your school, or with the support of a parent if you are home educated, you can apply to join East Somerset Partnership classes for 14 - 16 year olds. Students will normally join in year 10 and study for two years.

Places on these courses are subject to availability and suitability; you will need to apply and attend an interview. If you are accepted onto a ESP course, your school and/or the ESP will pay the course fees, depending on whether you are attending school or added to the College roll if you are home educated.


Evening classes

14-16 students may apply to join an adult evening class at Strode, subject to availability and suitability which will be assessed through application and an interview. A parent or guardian must be at college during the evening class. You will need to pay the full cost for evening classes. 


How to apply

Enquiries and applications should be directed to Jill Deakin, Assistant Principal & Director of Vocational Studies.
