Outcomes & Evidence

Our aims for students are higher than just completing school: we want to achieve positive outcomes for every single student. 


Improving Opportunities to Transform Outcomes

At Norton College we work alongside each young person to build a better future for themselves. Our college-based system has been carefully developed to prepare young people for the world of work – emotionally, vocationally and socially.

We have transformed the way an educational premises looks, transformed the way with deliver the curriculum and transformed the way we deal with the young people which hopefully will transform the outcomes. 

Every student is encouraged to make the most of their experiences and education at Norton College by engaging fully in College life and activities. We want to give our students real, purposeful skills that will stand them in good stead for the future. Consequently, not only do we provide academic and pastoral support we also provide quality vocational training in a wide choice of areas. 

Teaching for the academic subjects is bespoke to the learner and predominantly in 1:1 sessions. There are times when small groups can be created depending on social groupings and ability levels.


Flexible Teaching

Our aim is to build a curriculum package in addition to the academic core subjects, that is driven by the interests and vocational aims of the student. By creating such a package we feel confident that the student will be more willing and receptive to engage with their particular programme. 

Our flexible teaching approach means that if we do not currently provide training in something a student is interested in, we will endeavour to establish a new course, thereby encouraging and inspiring the student to fulfil their dreams and ambitions. 

We also adapt teaching styles and environments to suit each individual so that everyone has the best possible chance of achieving their goals.
