Learning outside the classroom

When we became an academy we asked our parents and carers what they wanted from our post-16 provision. Life skills and preparation for life came the resounding response. This year we have accessed Sam’s workshop which is a provision for students and young adults like those at Beech. Students have the opportunity to work in a real shop, learning catering and customer service skills. They also have the chance to work on the private allotment developing horticulture skills and caring for the small animals.
