Meadowbrook College has 2 Key Stage 4 bases (West Bar) in Banbury and (The Harlow Centre) in Oxford. We have students on part-time and full-time programmes aimed at preparing students for successful transition back into their schools or in moving on to further education, employment or training at the end of year 11. Learning takes place in small groups and aims to support students to re-engage with education in order to better their chances of being successful. All KS4 students follow a core curriculum focussing on essential knowledge and skills in Maths, English, Personal and Social Development and additionally choose from a variety of interesting option and Vocational/ Technical subjects. A number of students have programmes that take place off site at our satellite sites or at a variety of providers/venues around Oxfordshire.
When students first start at Meadowbrook College they undergo a period of induction whilst we assess their needs and prepare an appropriate tailored programme of support. This includes putting together a personalised timetable which will ensure each student can make the progress needed to succeed at either Meadowbrook College, in their next school or in further education or employment. We also work closely with students and their families to ensure we all set aspirational academic targets in order to gain the necessary accreditation required for their next steps.
The main aim of all our Key stage 4 programmes is to enable students to be best prepared for their successful move into the world of training, further education or work-related-learning.
