Welcome to the Y Pant 6th form options website! We offer our 6th form in collaboration with Bryncelynnog Comprehensive School in Beddau and as such, operate as the Bryncelynnog Y Pant Consortium (BYC). This strong partnership, going back many years, allows both schools to offer students a broad range of subjects together with the experience of attending a different school and broadening their horizons.
Timetables are developed side-by-side and a minibus provides free transport for students between both schools.
The Consortium 6th form is open to any student who will benefit from the education and opportunities we offer. All prospective entrants will be offered guidance on the range of options open to them at enrolment, however, the final decision on admission will rest with the respective Heads of School at each centre.
If you are considering continuing your education with the Consortium you should be asking yourself the following questions:
- Is the curriculum provided relevant to your future career and educational aspirations?
- Does the curriculum offer enough breadth and balance allowing you to the develop skills, competence and knowledge which will be useful in future life?
- Is the social environment supportive and stimulating, giving you to establish good personal relationships with fellow students and staff?
The BYC Consortium’s activities are organised so that it can satisfy all these expectations and aspirations. The two schools work in unison to offer a broad range of opportunities and experiences, students have greater flexibility in their options choices to follow a curriculum which suits their goals.
BYC places equal worth and value on all students, irrespective of race, gender and background. Each student is treated as an individual and the Consortium endeavours to provide the academic and social opportunities to meet the needs of all individuals.
BYC seeks to provide:
- The opportunity to obtain academic and vocational qualifications which are required for higher, further education and employment.
