Welcome to The Workplace, a vocationally focussed Alternative provision Free School opened in September 2020. We have had a successful first year in which we offered Key stage 4 students high quality, accredited vocational provision in Hairdressing, Catering, Automotive, Construction, Arts and Sports & Fitness alongside a Technical Award in ICT and GCSE’s in Maths, English and Science.
I now look forward to welcoming a new Year 10 cohort who will study for up to 8 qualifications including a newly introduced BTEC in Enterprise. In 2021-22. I am also excited to welcome our first Year 9 students, who will undertake a programme of vocational taster sessions and will be supported to develop their functional skills. This is an exciting and aspirational school to attend, with industry standard equipment and facilities, dedicated high quality teaching staff and high levels of pastoral support. I look forward to welcoming you all to The Workplace in September 2021.
