Head of Department
Mrs G Glover
At Cornwallis Academy the Vocational Department provides access to all subjects and an insight into how they operate. We are an energetic and ambitious team, who seek to provide lessons that enthuse our students and help to develop the skills they need to support future aspirations. Subjects will be supported by visits and speakers where course appropriate and where topics are not covered but felt important to give a more rounded insight into the qualification being studied.
