Study at Ashton Gate this September

If you’ve just received your GCSE results but are uncertain on what to do next, have you considered Bristol City Community Trust’s education programme?

The Community Trust is a registered sport and education charity whose focus is to engage and inspire young people, raising and celebrating education achievement.

Through its continual growth in strength and capacity, the Trust has the appropriate sport structure to enable learners to develop life skills, maximise career choices and opportunities through carefully designed qualifications, support and activities.

Such a structure sees the Trust attract and accept a diverse range of students on to any of four exciting post-16 courses, which combines academic studies with a sporting experience.

The following post-16 programmes are available through the Trust, free of charge:

With each course based at the newly-redeveloped Ashton Gate Stadium, where purpose-built classroom and facilities are evident, the Trust’s culture of valuing education is bolstered by the learning environment. This assists in inspiring a positive attitude to drive education, personal and social progress, without the fear of failure.

The Trust’s ability, passion and drive to deliver the highest level of education to individuals wanting to enhance their quality of life, assists in positive levels of success attained through personalised learning.

In addition to the compulsory course requirements, the Trust provides students with a variety of extra-curricular activities, to further their academic progress and enhance desired life skills.

All of the above factors contribute to what is a fantastic and unique educational experience for prospective students looking to kick-start their career within the sports industry.

Head of education Chris Stenner said: "I would like to wish all of the Community Trust students and prospective students the best of luck in receiving their GCSEs today.

“There are limited spaces left on each of our post-16 courses. If you’re at all interested, I urge you to get in touch as soon as possible.

"Remember, no matter what grades you achieve at GCSE, we have a course for you."
