Forward thinking

The school is part of a new movement which is seeking to offer students exciting alternative routes into higher education and employment. The Nishkam School Trust is therefore engaged in discussions with employers and universities to plan courses and opportunities for sixth form students which accelerate their admission to work and higher education.

Discussions with employers are focused on extended work experiences and progression to internships in the professional service sector including law, finance and commerce. In the case of universities the Trust is seeking to develop foundation degree courses, in partnership with leading universities, for students who would benefit from the additional challenge of working beyond A levels.
