We believe education is more than just a pathway to a certificate. We hold weekly tutor groups incorporating enrichment activities, direct support and guidance to help signpost students with their individual needs. We facilitate access to travel, food & discretionary bursaries, offer reward incentives and engage with the Care to Learn scheme.

Students have embedded in their study programme a series of workshops and 1-2-1 meetings with devoted and experienced employability coaches and work placement coordinators to help them develop work skills, career awareness and find a placement relevant to their chosen vocation.

As part of our ethos, we treat mental health as one of our most important focuses. Creating a psychologically informed environment to help reduce anxiety through the adoption of small groups and sympathetic teachers. All students have access to on-site counsellors, EHCP worker and our dedicated welfare and well-being team.

We aim at inspiring our students to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more in their respective journeys of life.
