The Teaching and Learning Centre (TLC)

SENCO: Ms S Reed

The Teaching and Learning Centre (TLC) provides support and direction for students of every kind across all three Communities.

It offers courses and interventions to develop basic skills and language, as well as providing extension courses and differentiated mainstream along with exams support.

We also support for those needing time to settle quickly and effectively into mainstream school life or needing time to calm and revive.

The suite of learning rooms offers an extensive alternative curriculum for students including:

  • Entry Level English, Maths and Science

  • CBT for Anxiety and Anger

  • Nurture for KS3

  • Literacy and Numeracy interventions

  • Speech and Language interventions

  • Outdoor learning and Horticulture

  • Handwriting support

Students are also able to have intensive mentoring and support in preparation for their GCSE’s and have access to professional counselling.

Teaching: is the art of assisting discovery

Learning:  is an experience, everything else is just information

Centre: your centre is where you begin and where you have the answers
