Sixth form college great new addition
Young people with social, emotional and educational difficulties will be able to study on 16 new vocational courses at a new sixth form centre in Ashford.
Goldwyn School, rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, officially opened its Sixth Form College last Thursday, at the Leacon Road site.
Ashford MP Damian Green helped cut the ribbon alongside Bob Law, school principal, and Steve Badder, college manager.
Goldwyn College will allow pupils to continue their studies with bespoke courses including motor vehicle maintenance, body repair and construction.
Mr Badder said: “Our aim is to assist those students to develop both the knowledge and skills in preparation for future employment and achieve the best possible outcome in their adult life.
“Our newly opened high specification workshops have the latest technology and equipment together with experienced specialist teaching and support staff to enable those students to progress to a successful future.”
