Newbury School Project
The proprietors of Newbury School are pleased to announce the launch of Newbury School Project.
Newbury School Project has been established to advance further education for the young people entering year 12 and those pursuing education to up-to 19 years of age. In particular, but without prejudice to these criteria, Newbury School Project will; establish, maintain, carry on, manage and develop a further educational facility offering a broad and balanced range of vocational activities, organised to make special educational provision for pupils with Special Educational Needs. The aim of this program is to provide full-time or part-time education for children of compulsory school age who, by reason of illness, exclusion from school or otherwise, may not for any period receive suitable education unless alternative provision is made for them.
This service will be managed by Gary Belcher, the previous Headteacher of Newbury School.
Newbury School Project
No student leaves Newbury school (NEET) Not in Education, Employment or Training. We would like Newbury school to develop the skills, ability and confidence for the students to be able to compete in the job market and add a significant and meaningful contribution to the environment and the communities they live in.
Newbury School Project has been designed to build on the successful work our Students have achieved whilst attending Newbury School. We feel it is imperative to continue the relationship model with our Students and now have the ability to continue working with them until they are 19 years of age.
We acknowledge that our Students may not benefit from the traditional classroom teaching approach. Newbury School enforce holistic education as it is considered a form of alternative learning because of its emphasis on creating a different learning environment. Newbury School Project echos this and provides vocational courses to allow our Students to learn through work placements, experience and apprenticeships.
Newbury School Project operates through partnerships with local organisations & institutions. We realise that there is a huge need to focus and engage young people within the community and have worked hard on doing so. The Police Crime Commissioner has noticed this and therefore, Newbury School has recently secured funding to continue supporting the community.
