Brunel College Humanities Field Trip
Based at our main campus, students benefit from small class sizes. A Core Curriculum, a range of Alternative Provisions, Work Experience and trained Thrive practitioners create a nurturing environment in which students can reach their potential.
To ensure the young person has increased chances of success we personalise a varied curriculum offer for them to meet their individual needs. This is designed with an emphasis on improving the core skills of literacy and numeracy, sequentially recuperating self-esteem through alternative learning opportunities and best preparing them for post-16 education, employment and/or training.
Our core academic curriculum offer focuses on English, Mathematics, Science, History and Art at qualification levels from Functional Skills through to GCSE’s.
This academic offer is complimented by our broad range of vocational options, experiences and qualifications. These target specific student requirements and potential post-16 destinations; delivered in conjunction with sector specific; industry recognised qualifications; work placements and vocational engagement activities, including:
Food & Cookery, iAchieve Health and Fitness and Business Studies, Forest School, RISE 61 Community gardening & landscaping, Active Hub Group Fitness Sessions, Bike Hub and Salisbury Impact MMA.
Anchoring this curriculum offer are our holistic therapeutic interventions aimed at aiding personal development, which includes PSHE, SMSC, Citizenship together with 1:1 Thrive, ELSA and Drawing and Talking sessions.
