Philip Southcote Sixth Form is purpose built to meet the needs of more vulnerable pupil with learning difficulties that need a safe environment with specialist teaching and pastoral support to access the curriculum.
Our Sixth Form curriculum provides learning opportunities for one, two or three years offering a personalised curriculum for each pupil incorporating Independent Living Skills, Work Related Learning and Vocational opportunities.
We have some students on work experience one day a week, others working with a Horticulture specialist and some attending college as part of their transition onto the next step. However the community remains the largest teaching resource for all our students.
Every student has an annual review where discussions take place with the students, parents and carers and support services regarding the next step, be it a further year in the Sixth Form, moving on to college, the world of work or a more specialist placement.
