We support each of our students to set and meet realistic goals for their own future, whether that is by working towards specific qualifications or vocational experience, or focusing on developing key life skills.
We offer a range of post-16 study programmes, including GCSE and A Level qualifications in selected subjects, as well as vocational qualifications in horticulture, motor vehicle mechanics, hospitality and tourism, IT and animal care.
Each study programme encompasses work-related learning, work experience, employability and independent living skills development, while our tutorial programme covers topics such as health and wellbeing, sex and relationships, cultural diversity and personal safety. We also work with a range of local, national and global businesses and agencies to offer excellent work-related learning experiences and work experience, providing meaningful employability opportunities for our students.
Our multidisciplinary team delivers specialist on-site therapy including Occupational, Speech and Language, Psychology and Psychiatry Therapy. Therapists work both directly with our students and indirectly through teaching and support staff to meet individual needs.
For residential students, Aurora Boveridge offers an opportunity to develop independent living skills in a safe, supported environment.
Our accommodation is both homely and welcoming because we recognise that being away from home, especially for the first time, can be stressful for both our students and their families.
Each accommodation area comprises of 6, 7 or 8 individual bedrooms, some of which are en-suite, with communal areas for socialising. Shared laundry and cooking facilities are available. Residents are welcome to personalise their individual rooms with items from home to help them settle in.
