About 6th Form - The Ocean
In all we do, our aim is to best prepare our students for their adult lives beyond Billing Brook
The Centre is approximately 1 mile from the main site and offers students the opportunity to follow a vocational programme which is personalised to the needs and interests of the students.
The curriculum follows a largely practical and experiential route, based on real life learning. This enables our students to grow into independent and confident young adults, and helps to prepare them for the next stage of their lives.
We aim for each student to leave having reached their full potential for the stage they are at, having gained the appropriate skills and knowledge for their next step into adulthood. Our curriculum focusses on developing the skills needed to access the community, to be as independent as they can be and to develop the skills required for work if that is an appropriate pathway for the individual.
Our Sixth Form Centre consists of 4 flexible learning spaces; a catering kitchen with dining area and courtyard; a horticulture area; a 1 bed flat complete with kitchenette, laundry facilities and a shower room. Within this compact space, our sixth form students take part in enterprise projects, catering, arts and crafts, hair and beauty and much, much more.
