Every student in KS4 is offered a one day a week placement at a local college where they can develop the skills and understanding that will see them make a smooth transition at Year 12. Students are encouraged to travel independently, to develop self-management skills in organising themselves and their work and to utilise the SEAL and communication skills they have learned in school.
As our students come from a wide catchment area, we support them in a number of colleges and offer them a correspondingly wide range of courses to suit their personal levels of achievement as well as their interests and aspirations.
Each year our students complete qualifications at college in a variety of curriculum areas at a range of levels, last year they achieved NVQ level 1s in Public Services, Motor Vehicles and Catering. All the students have gone on to continue their studies at college, making a good transition into college life.
