I am very proud to be Principal of the Voyage Learning Campus and of the work that we do with young people. Staff are highly committed to helping our young people to achieve more than they themselves might believe is possible, many having faced significant challenge in their lives.
The Voyage Learning Campus opened in April 2013 as a multi-site school, supporting students from Year 1 through to Year 11. We provide alternative provision for young people who for a number of reasons are unable to attend main stream school; these include:
- Students with medical or health problems
- Students who have been permanently excluded from a mainstream school
Our team of dedicated teachers and support staff help children develop their resilience, confidence and academic potential, supporting them to develop positive relationships with adults and each other. It is not always easy for some but we believe that progress is always possible. As an alternative provision, we are able to offer a more flexible curriculum to our students that is more personalised to their individual needs. This helps students gain in confidence and skills to enable a move back into mainstream, or at times, specialist provision. Many students who are referred to us, return swiftly and successfully back to mainstream schools. Students who remain with us attain a wide range of formal qualifications and we have a successful record for our students accessing post 16 places at college. We are proud to have played a small part of their longer educational journey and future life successes.
