Post-16 Transition Event

A group of our older students visited a Transition Event to find out about some of the options open to them after they leave school. The event was organised by Orchard Hill College, the academy sponsor for the Trust we belong to. The College is recognised as Outstanding by Ofsted and offers social and vocational opportunities to post-16 students with a range of special needs.

As well as being able to talk to staff from the college, students were also able to meet with other providers including Enhance Able – that supports people with disabilities in Kingston upon Thames and Richmond; Balance – a social enterprise provider enabling people to become less reliant on services and reach their potential; TFL Assistance – that supports people with disabilities to use the London Transport network; Day Space – an organisation that provides person-centred activities for people within the learning disability community; and Kingston Parent Carer Forum.

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
