As you are aware, we are very pleased to host a ‘Resource Base’ at Henbury, which offers places to up to 35 students with learning difficulties aged between 11 and 16.
Last year the local authority asked us to extend this provision to age 19, in order to provide education for up to ten students from our Resource Base and elsewhere. The Post 16 provision offers opportunities for students to extend their vocational skills and learning and develop their skills of independence. Entry is through an Education and Health Care Plan, agreed by the local authority. In order to offer the provision described above, we need to undertake a consultation to extend our provision to age 19, only for students in the Post 16 Resource Base. I would be very pleased if you could respond to this consultation by clicking the image above.
Students at Henbury have been celebrating some excellent results, as they received their grades, with some outstanding successes across the board. Many students did extremely well, with 42% of mainstream students gaining at least one A/ A* grade. Particular congratulations go to our highest achieving students.
We were also thrilled by the achievements of our students in the Resource Base, all of whom left with a range of qualifications, including at least one GCSE. For all schools, the new GCSEs in Maths and English have provided lots of challenge, and the new grading structure from 9 (equivalent to an A**) to 1 will take a lot of getting used to for parents and employers. We wish every one of our students the greatest success as they move forwards in their education, and look forward to hearing of their future accomplishments.
