About Our Campus
The Campus opened in April 2013 and provides bespoke individual education programmes for up to 105 young people. The Voyage Learning Campus was formerly known as North Somerset Local Authority Education Other Than at School Service (EOTAS). Our Campus provides education to students who are unable to access mainstream school provision for a wide variety of reasons.
The Campus has the following provision across North Somerset:-

VLC Nailsea has two dedicated areas of the site. One for our Pupil Referral Unit provision for students in years 7 and 8 and one for our Tuition students in years 1 - 11. Students in the Pupil Referral Unit who will have been referred to the Campus either because of permanent exclusion from school or as a result of being in imminent danger of permanent exclusion.
The Tuition Service caters for all age groups from Key Stages 1 to 4 who are out of school. Programmes are delivered in either the home, the community, Centres or through reintegration packages within their mainstream school.
Students are referred to the service because they:-
- Have anxiety about attending school (anxiety based school refusal)
- Are expectant mothers
- Are recovering from an injury/operation which precludes them from being able to attend school
- Have chronic illness and terminal illness
- Have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome.
The curriculum is very much tailored on an individual basis and takes into account the needs of the young person.
