Kath Cooper, Principal of CLF Post 16 

Dear students and parents,

I am proud to welcome you to the Cabot Learning Federation Post 16. We are a diverse community that welcomes and values students, parents and staff from all backgrounds and religious traditions.

The Cabot Learning Federation is one of the most mature MultiAcademy Trusts in the South West. Our partnership is sponsored by Rolls-Royce PLC and University of the West of England (UWE). The CLF currently consists of six primary academies, seven mainstream secondary academies, an allthrough academy and a Studio School. In addition, there is our discrete Post 16 provision, located across two of our academies in the Bristol / South Gloucestershire area. Together, as a Federation, we educate 8000 children between the ages of 3 and 19.

The 16-19 age range is recognised nationally as the catalyst for the future careers and a pivotal emotional stage for young people. We have a dedicated professional Post 16 team adept at providing excellent guidance and preparing young people for employment and further academic training. It is a unique stage of a young person’s journey to adulthood and our belief is that young adults need specialist support and access to opportunities to grow ambition during this transition to being a grown up.

We believe that getting teaching right the first time enables students to achieve success, opens possibilities and enables wider influence. We possess unwavering ambition for all children regardless of background or present attainment and we set expectations high. Your child will be expected to achieve here. We track progress carefully and work with students to develop their ambition for their intended destination.

We look forward to working with your family in the near future and supporting your child to become an adult, prepared for the workplace or further study, at CLF Post 16.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Kath Cooper
