Our Approach

Our approach is modelled on whole person strategies, for tackling the root causes of the many social, emotional, academic and economic problems our learners are faced with. We work on the belief that by dealing with the root causes rather than the costly after-effects, we can enhance every young person's ability to transition and navigate life's challenges more effectively.

  • A very high proportion of learners attending South Quay College have complex or significant personal, social or learning difficulties and most have few formal qualifications.
  • Mainstream education poses a significant barrier for 14-19 year olds with Special Education Needs (SEN).
  • 117,000 of 16-24 year olds are unemployed, of which 25% are economically inactive.
  • 16% of 19 year olds have not achieved a Level 2 qualification (GCSE A-C) - vital for employment.
  • We provide a wholly supportive service tailored to ensure that our young people are enabled to respond to and benefit from their changing environments.
Outstanding teaching, learning and assessment motivate and enthuse learners in lessons, ensuring learners behave well, enjoy learning and make rapid progress.
