Working with young people

Through promoting educational and social inclusion at College Hall, we aim to provide high quality education for those young people who are unable to attend mainstream school because of their complex and often disaffected behaviour, anxiety or medical needs.

Situated in the west of Bracknell Forest in a quiet location, our attractive, flexible and well-maintained building provides a space where young people can reconnect with learning.

We have a very strong staff team: flexible and creative, so that we are able to deliver bespoke packages of education for young people, achieving positive outcomes. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum for young people of all abilities and success and achievement in any area is recognised and valued. Relationships between staff and young people are friendly and mutually respectful.

We aim to make young people feel safe and happy at College Hall. Their day is highly organised and young people are actively supervised at all times. Every day starts with a breakfast club and staff and young people eat lunch together. Break and lunchtimes are used to deliver planned activity sessions through our staff team.

Our work with young people is characterised by:

  • a friendly, welcoming and encouraging approach
  • a commitment to pupils with special educational needs
  • a structured approach to behaviour management
  • challenge to young people to take responsibility for behaviour and to make positive choices
  • the development of self confidence, self esteem and ambition
