Post 16

Our college provision welcomes students from 16 years to currently 21 years however this may be amended if the need arose. Students enrol on tailor made programmes to guide them forward to a more independent future. Students are taught in very small nurture groups and/or one to one to support each individual’s needs. A variety of complimentary therapies are available for students including; speech and language therapy and occupational therapy. Qualified and caring staff teams are dedicated to maintaining a safe, calm and productive environment for all students.

Literacy and numeracy are embedded throughout all courses with students given opportunities to continue their studies in GCSE maths and GCSE English. Students who have completed GCSEs in year 11 will have the opportunity to re-sit or upgrade their qualification (to A level), in an environment where they can develop socially with the skills required to move forward to a larger setting.

If you are interested in another course that is not listed, please discuss the possibility of this course with us.

However in amongst this we believe that at the heart of our offer is our belief that It’s a real privilege to nurture children, make them happy and support them through the laughter and the tears. We make lifelong bonds and are proud to provide the same high quality education, support and care as they become young adults.
