Through the Burnley Learning Partnership we work collaboratively with Burnley College, Thomas Whittam Sixth Form, Accrington and Rossendale College, Myerscough College and Nelson and Colne College to develop opportunities for students between the ages of fourteen and sixteen. We also establish effective links with Higher Educational Institutions across the North West and local training providers and employers.

During year 11 effective transition links are established through post-16 taster days and interviews with pupils with the aim of ensuring that all our pupils are engaged in appropriate education, employment or training.
