We offer a comprehensive 16-19 curriculum for pupils in Key Stage 5, including a variety of options both at our key sites: Coxlease School Hub and Skills Centre. Where possible, we wish for our learners to attend local colleges, as a means of developing independence and ensuring our students experience the subjects they wish to do. Additional support is provided accordingly to ensure all our learners transition successfully into their post-16 education, however we promote a independent environment where our learners gain in confidence and resilience preparation for adulthood.
Our Post-16 (Coxlease) facilities provides a variety of different pathways, ensuring all learners seek appropriate qualifications, that will enable them to start their career journey with success.
