Starting with the summer term we are dramatically increasing our GCSE and other exam offers. This is in direct response to a dramatic increase in requests for services 16 -19 as well as adult services. We are sadly meeting an increasing number of young people who have experienced placement breakdown in year 11 due to bullying, pressure or school issues. We are also meeting a large number of adults who were unable to complete their qualifications due to very high levels of anxiety and are now having difficulties knowing what they are going to do longer term as their anxiety needs have still not been dealt with and their qualifications are not in place.
We can accept privately funding students as well as students with an EHCP. Our new offer to LEAs (Surrey, Hampshire, West Sussex, Bracknell Forest) includes a whole section on supporting students with GCSE and life skills courses up to age 19 via EHCP funding, including GCSE re-takes or out of year qualifications and post 16 qualifications.
Students in Y10 / 11 attend sessions 13:00 onwards and we have group, 1:1 and 1:2 tuition taking place up to 17:30 pm each evening. This means that we can work with their registered school, or if they are at home they can be registered with an online school provision or A2E.
Younger students can also attempt GCSE and other qualifications early if they would like to. For home educating students this leaves the morning free for sports, other activities, work experience etc. Home educators tend to tackle GCSE with a mixed approach -private home tutors, parents taking the lead, online learning etc - and we are happy to liase with others if you are joining some group tuition slots with us or using our 1:1 tuition service. We are also able to offer in person support to those taking online GCSE courses and work with their contact tutor or help with assignments.
Once students turn they 16 can choose to join the Y12 / 13 plus groups if they would like to do so which run from 10:30 as these also have a GCSE focus, or students can choose to join higher level qualifications early. Students choose from the timetable of opportunities, designing their personal schedule - this can also include attendance at a college with our support; ideal for students with social anxiety. English, maths and lifeskills run continuously throughout the day so students can fit them easily into their schedule of other subjects.

CHILDCARE VOUCHERS UPDATE
LIKE MANY TUITION / THERAPY CENTRES WE ARE NOT REGISTERED WITH OFSTED UNDER EDUCATION. WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY A REGISTERED SCHOOL, ALTHOUGH WE ARE MAKING AN APPLICATION TO BECOME ONE. WE THEREFORE ONLY OFFER LIMITED HOURS. WE WERE REGISTERED WITH OFSTED ON THE VOLUNTARY REGISTER FOR CHILDCARE, HOWEVER WE NO LONGER TAKE CHILDCARE VOUCHERS AS OF 16/05 WHEN WE CEASED OFSTED VOLUNTARY REGISTRATION. WE CEASED VOLUNTARY REGISTRATION TEMPORARILY AS WE ARE CHANGING OUR NAME BOTH FOR THE EXAM CENTRE AND FOR ONCE WE BECOME A SCHOOL (AIMING FOR JANUARY) .WE WILL THEN BE REGISTERED WITH OFSTED ONCE MORE UNDER 'EDUCATION' RATHER THAN CHILDCARE. IN THE MEANTIME IF YOU HAVE A SAFEGUARDING CONCERN WE ARE INSPECTED BY THE LEA AND FOLLOW THE SAME PROCEDURES AS IN SCHOOLS. OUR POLICIES ARE CURRENTLY UNDER REVIEW TO REFLECT THIS CHANGE BUT WE CAN NOT OFFER 'SCHOOL HOURS' UNTIL THIS PROCESS IS COMPLETE; YOU CAN REGISTER INTEREST HOWEVER AND WE WILL CONTACT YOU IN JANUARY IF WE HAVE ACHIEVED SCHOOL STATUS.
