During 2019/2020 academic year an important new initiative for Seven Hills has been to develop an outreach group at Peaks College. This year the group has focused on the needs of Y13-Y14 students who may be preparing for transition to college/or other educational settings during the 2020/21 school year.
The group currently based at Peaks are integrated into the college day and use the college facilities and buildings as part of there new “college life experience”. Students continue to be taught by Seven Hills staff, experiencing the Seven Hills Post 16 curriculum but most importantly building confidence and a robustness to thrive in a bigger setting and gain a sense of what college/future placements will be like as they leave Seven Hills.
Developing confidence, communication skills and independence are key aims for the Peaks group.
