6Oaks School & Post 16 Tuition

6Oaks is based at the Dukes Centre and delivers education to 16–19 students with EHCPs. Admissions are handled by AfC's SEN Team, who will send consultation paperwork for our consideration. Many of our students have previously experienced challenges in accessing education in their mainstream or specialist settings and our aim is to re-engage our students and build their confidence so that they are able to achieve their potential and develop their skills and talents . This is achieved through an alternative small setting that can provide a bespoke timetable that meets the students’ needs. Students can undertake A levels, re-take or do GCSEs, embark on work experience and enjoy activities and develop skills through the Duke of Edinburgh scheme. 

Through the 4 As; Attachment, Achievement, Altruism and Autonomy, we work to ensure all students are able to leave 6Oaks more confident, resilient and with a feeling of purpose and direction. They may apply to university, gain a place on an apprenticeship or undertake employment at the end of their time in 6Oaks. 

Students in 6Oaks are taught in small groups of no more than 6. All their learning is done with subject specialist, experienced teachers who benefit from having the time and space to get to know their students; their strengths and their areas for development.
