Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Goldwyn School Opening -

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.”
