Hair and Beauty is offered to our current Year 10 and 11 students through the VTCT approved technical certificate.  Within this qualification students are introduced to the industrial sector and complete a series of design briefs to build their skillset; equipping them for the demand of the course.


Students have access to a fully functioning salon, staffed by two industry experienced teachers.  Within the salon students have access to ICT facilities, and academic classroom as well as new and relevant equipment and resources in both the hair and beauty sectors respectively.


In Year 10 students cover the foundation skills and all students are entered for the Level 1 qualification.  Our students are proud to achieve this prior to the commencement of their Level 2 course.  Alongside the Level 1 students are prepared for the demands of the 25% examination and complete model design briefs to replicate the demand of Year 11.


In Year 11 our students are entered early for the examination in January.  They also complete their 3 mandatory and optional briefs, contributing to the remainder of the qualification.


Currently, KS3 do not access Hair and Beauty but the course will be offered as a Level 1 to Year 9 as part of the ambition for all Year 9 students to access a technical award.
