Southway accepts students throughout the year based on the needs of the referring schools; often these are students who have had a fragmented learning experience during their time at mainstream school.
The 2021/22 Year 11 cohort consisted of 36 students and half of the cohort joined Southway in the first few weeks of Year 11, having had a very limited educational experience during the pandemic.
From this cohort, all students have successfully moved onto further education, employment or training and Southway have reported no ‘Not in Education, Employment, or Training’ (NEETs) for the seventh year running.
The cohort achieved:
In addition to the above qualifications, students also achieved one or more qualifications in the following courses:
- Art (GCSE photography)
- BTEC Tech Award in Enterprise
- Food and cookery
- Health and fitness
- Health and social care
This year Southway also launched the Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Award at Key Stage 4 – which has proved to be a huge success.
All Southway students are registered with E-DofE which is an online platform which means any skills achieved are transferrable as students move on to further education, employment and training. To date nine students have achieved the full DofE Bronze Award and 12 students achieved more than one element of the DofE Award (which is transferrable).
