The William Clift Academy

The William Clift Academy is all about aspiration and opportunities. We are passionate about our students at Bodmin College having access to as many career pathway opportunities as they can and more importantly we support the students to access these through a personalised programme. There are 20 Accessing Professions groups mentored by a member of staff in a range of pathways, from Performing Arts to Medicine. These groups meet regularly and opportunities are shared. There is a William Clift Facebook group for students and parents which advertises a plethora of university days, summer schools and work experience and students are regularly emailed information. Our alumni are regularly brought back into College to share their experiences with the students.

16 – 19 Funding: 16 to 19 Tuition Fund

The 16 to 19 tuition fund is being used to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19). The funding is being provided to support small group tuition for 16 to 19 students in English, mathematics, and other courses where learning has been disrupted. Bodmin College has prioritised support for students who have not achieved a grade 4 in English and/or mathematics. Where it is possible funding available within our allocation may also be used to support any young people with a grade 4 who also require catch up support. We have prioritised students that will benefit most from small group tuition and considered the needs of students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), particularly where they have experienced additional disruption to learning as a result of their specific needs and disabilities.
