Health & Social Care
The Health and Social Care Department has a consistent record for high achievement for students both at key stage 4 and key stage 5. This is a reflection of the dedication and hard work of our experienced staff, who regularly offer after school sessions to students of all abilities. In addition revision and intervention workshops are offered to students during the school holidays.
The department has close links with Health and Social Care services in the local area to provide students with the opportunity for enrichment activities to facilitate their studies and develop their skills.
In Year 11, students are given the opportunity to participate in the Baby Care Programme whereby they are given the opportunity to take home an animatronic baby for the weekend. This has proven to be an excellent experience for our students and they receive a certificate in Baby Care if they are successful.
