Travel and Tourism
Travel and Tourism lessons are taught to years 10, 11, 12 and 13 and are taught in a dedicated room on the main site. This room is equipped with at least 30 computers and plenty of tourism resources.
In years 10 & 11 students have 10 lessons a fortnight and study OCR Nationals. At A level students have 9 lessons a fortnight in years 12 & 13. At OCR Nationals in year 12 students have 15 lessons a fortnight.
The OCR Nationals is worth 4 GCSEs and is taken over one year in year 12 (this has to be taken in conjunction with one other level 2 course from Business Studies, ICT or Health and Social Care). It is studied over 2 years in year 10 & 11.
The nature of the subject means we have to go on school trips which are usually Thorpe Park in year 10, Paris and Disney Paris in year 11, Colchester Zoo in year 12 and Malta in year 13.
