Our students enjoy the safe and familiar surroundings of the school. We aim to provide them with a ‘tool box for life’ – a variety of skills and coping mechanisms that they can take with them in to the next stage of their life, whether it be further education or employment. Our methods give pupils the essential skills needed to be confident in the workplace, plus the knowledge and practical experiences needed to lead fulfilling adult lives.
Students in the post 16 group work with their teacher and parents to develop a 'moving on plan' - for some this may be support in applying for a college course or applying for job and training schemes. Help and guidance is given to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible.
Many of the tasks the students undertake will help build competencies in citizenship, relating to others, managing situations and working as part of a team - all key to being fulfilled and employable adults.
