Welcome to The Grove School’s website we hope that it offers you lots of useful information about our school.
Our website aims to paint a picture of our rich curriculum and versatile approach to whole school, class and individualised learning but is no substitute for a personal visit to experience the ethos and culture of the life of our school in action.
We are always happy to share our schools successes and achievements with visitors so please telephone to make an appointment if you are interested in seeing our school’s educational opportunities and provision.
PREPARATION FOR ADULTHOOD
We hosted our annual Preparation for Adulthood open afternoon at school on Monday 25 th September from 1-3pm. Each year this provides pupils, parents and carers the opportunity to meet and chat with many of the local provisions which can offer Education or Social Care packages at either Post 16 or post school.
Local provisions that kindly attended our event this year were: Shared Interests; Border Links; Northstar; Choices College; NCC Careers Guidance; NCC Learning and Organisational Development. We also provided three laptops displaying the prospectus and websites for: Kirkley Hall College; Dilston College; Borders College. Pupils, parents and carers were able to look at all the display stands, ask questions and collect leaflets and information which will hopefully support them towards making transition decisions in the future.
Oak Class made their delicious traybakes again and refreshments were served throughout the afternoon so that parents could enjoy a social catch up too. We will be hosting the event again next September and hope to have even more local provisions there to support everyone in the decision making process.
