College / Sixth Form

Towards the end of Key Stage 2, pupils prepare for their transition to Key Stage 3 and the move from Hollow Lane (our primary site, Early Years to Year 6) to Ellen Tinkham College at Wayside Crescent (our secondary site, Year 7 to Year 14).

Based at Wayside Crescent in Exeter, Ellen Tinkham College educates students aged 11-19 years.  During their time at the College, students continue their education focusing on core National Curriculum and Foundation subjects.

Whilst at the College, students also participate in activities such as travel training and home life skills.  In addition, students have the opportunity to gain work experience so by the time they reach Sixth Form, they have more of an understanding of their next steps in life.

The Key Stage 5 (Post 16 Education) curriculum is linked to the ‘Preparing for Adulthood’ Framework, with student outcomes centred around Education and Employment, Independence, Community Inclusion and Health. There is also a Careers Programme in place.

Everyone will be the best they can be; Everyone has a voice; No-one is excluded.
