All Bedelsford School students extend their education experience either by joining our new Sixth form or when they leave Bedelsford School at the end of Year 11. On occasions students may move to a new home or they may progress to be able to attend a Mainstream provision before they reach Year 11.
Until 2015 most Year 11 students opted for an experience in another school as the move to college was a big step at that age. The schools that they selected varied according to the borough they came from and what their primary presenting educational need was. Since that date we have our own Sixth Form provision.
From this September (2017) we have 11 Post 16 students. Our aim is to ensure that students reach their full potential and maximise their independence, communication, mobility, thinking and social/emotional skills in preparation for the life that is ahead of them.
