The Post 16 provision at Demeter House School offers a wide range of academic, vocational and pastoral subjects. Each student’s timetable is individually tailored to them around their personal needs and aspirations and there are entry requirements for the Post 16 provision that must be met and maintained.
Entry requirements include a minimum attendance rate, a willingness to participate in work experience placements regularly and meeting set outcomes each term. A review meeting will be held each term with the Post 16 Coordinator and the continuation of the placement depends on the outcome of these review meetings.
We offer A-levels, GCSE and a range of vocational qualifications including ICT and Construction qualifications.
Alongside the academic and vocational development of the students, a large emphasis is placed on the students’ preparation for adulthood. We aim to be able to provide the students with the life skills they will need upon leaving Demeter House School, including independent travel training, financial budgeting, cooking and cleaning. We have a self contained flat on site where students can practice their independent living skills on a regular basis.
We offer regular information, advice, support and guidance to the students and parents. This enables our students to make informed decisions about their future and ultimately allows them to work consistently towards achieving their life goals.
We can also provide supported transitions to local mainstream colleges or other providers and have good links with a range of different settings.
Our Vocational and Careers Coordinators are Mark Wilkinson and Anna Martin.
Adam Walker is our Post 16 Coordinator.
