Oak class are based in Mereside extension building, a flexible space designed to allow students to develop skills for work and independent living skills.  We are equipped with a full kitchen, classroom area, toilets and social space.

In Post 16, we aim to facilitate the development of existing and new skills within real-life contexts to enable our pupils to prepare for the next stage in their lives.  Pupils work towards a variety of suitable accreditations and qualifications including ASDAN Towards Independence, ASDAN Personal Progress and ASDAN Personal and Social Development amongst others.  We have a highly practical curriculum model with lots of opportunities to access other provisions including Bridge Inn Farm, local leisure facilities as well as our community visits to local shops and events.
