Key Stage 5

Key Stage 5 students tend to visit for very specific reasons, and as such the typical "learning resource" is no longer appropriate. Instead, working with our venues we have identified unique opportunities for 6th form and college students focusing on particular modules where we can help facilitate learning. Therefore most of the materials available for this Key Stage are actually short introductions to highlight what's available, rather than a series of tasks and exercises as for younger students. We can then link you up with the venue to facilitate a visit.
