During their time at Clarendon pupils are taught life skills, Travel training and given career advice. Along with our link course at Richmond College, year 11 pupils have an opportunity to experience further education and what life will be like after Clarendon.
We are able to access some travel training support from AfC and other neighbouring authorities. Please get in touch with the school if you would like your child to receive some travel training.
In years 10 and 11 Careers Education is taught as part of our citizenship and life skills curriculum. Richmond Education Business Partnership support with this, and offer interview practice. In some cases, young people likely to require support with independent living in adulthood are support by the LA Transitions Officer.
From year 9 we provide an individually tailored range of academic and vocational courses. These include GCSEs, Entry Level Certificates, Adult Literacy and Numeracy Qualifications, BTECs, Unit Awards, the Asdan Youth Award Scheme and an accredited cycle maintenance qualification. Some pupils can also access other courses in mainstream schools.
In year 11 pupils attend a link course one day each week at a Richmond college, preparing them for life beyond school. Pupils participate in workplace visits and in blocks of work experience in both Year 10 and Year 11. At the end of year 11 pupils are presented with a Record of Achievement, summarising and celebrating their many attainments and successes through the school.
