Meadowbrook College has 2 Key Stage 4 bases (West Bar) in Banbury and (The Harlow Centre) in Oxford. A number of students have programmes that take place 'off site' 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.
All students are offered the opportunity to achieve up to 8 Level 2 qualifications (sometimes more if with us for a longer period of time). We aim for all our students to:
- Gain accreditation in our core subjects of GCSE Maths, English, and Science, BTEC PSHE and BTEC Workskills
- Gain accreditation in Option subjects including Sociology, ICT Music, Sport and Art.
- Have a long-term Work Experience placement and access to Information, Advice and Guidance around career/further education options
- Acquire Technical/Vocational qualifications in Hair and Beauty, Construction, Farm studies, Photography, Hospitality & Catering
