The Carlbury Centre is home to BHAs Post-16 students, run by Catherine Passman.
Here, our young adults access personalised programmes of study that focus on the challenges faced in the transition into adult life. The curriculum is based on skills for life, independence and employment opportunities. Students are encouraged to develop independence skills, to make choices and develop the confidence to be assertive about their own lives using the communication skills they have developed over previous years. We are committed to providing a wide range of work-related learning and experiences. Both pre-entry and entry level qualifications are offered. Students achieve accreditation in Maths, English, Personal and Social Development and Towards Independence.
Learning takes place in a range of environments; we move from purely school based activities to those taking place within the local community as we prepare students to take their place in the wider world. The Carlbury Centre itself is a large, open environment with a catering area, ICT suite and an outdoor horticulture area complete with greenhouse. Smaller teaching areas are also available.
The school day for these students begins at 9.00 am and finishes at 3.30 pm. The students have an hour for lunch and a 15 minute mid-morning break.
