Our mission at Norton College Tewkesbury is to give the most challenged and challenging children and young people the educational, social and vocational skills they need to be able to integrate into society.
At our Tewkesbury college, we work with young people, from 11-19 years old, who have had unsuccessful educational experiences in the past.
Our purpose-built, bespoke study areas at Norton College Tewkesbury provide the space and encouragement students may need to settle and study with support from staff.
Our purpose built vocational hub supports the delivery of a wide range of vocational subjects focussing primarily around the construction industry. However, this will grow in-line with the interests of the students.
Norton College Tewkesbury is developing a music suite which will form part of the creative hub. The music suite will include opportunities to create and experiment with digital music using industrial standard equipment. Students will also have the ability to learn to play traditional musical instruments.
Our professional kitchen provides a large area where students will be taught catering skills in readiness for future progression.
Norton College Tewkesbury has access to a whole host of off-site recreational facilities such as: rock climbing, horse riding, skating, go karting, fishing, snooker, forest school, hill walking, mountain biking, swimming, skateboarding, music recording and ten pin bowling.
“We also access local libraries, places of different religious denominations and other options such as youth and local shopping centres, all of which add to the richness of the student’s experience.”
Ian Hardicker, Education Director, Norton College
Designed around student’s aims and aspirations, we create bespoke learning programmes to engage students purposefully in their learning and improve their outcomes. Focusing on both academic and vocational subjects, our bespoke learning packages are flexible to accommodate individual learning styles for each student. Students will also experience and consolidate the many ‘soft skills’ or ‘character skills’ that are crucial for successful adulthood.What we offer
