We seek to offer a wide range of opportunities to students in order to develop them in the broadest sense and enable them to be a great role model for both the school and wider society.

Work Related Learning

Reach SchoolWork Related Learning at Reach

Work Related Learning is a planned activity that uses the context of work to develop knowledge, skills and understanding that will be useful in a working environment.

At Reach we believe that WRL is about having the chance to learn and practice the skills you will need in the workplace. It is a core part of our curriculum and we offer various opportunities for our students to develop these skills in their chosen field.

Examples of what we offer include: Construction, Childcare, Catering, Mechanics, Retail, Hair and Beauty, Customer Service, ICT, Business Administration, Personal and Social Development, Enviromental Conservation and sports.

Students attend their Work placement on a weekly basis and as well as gain employability skills they also gain skills in punctuality, customer service, tool handling, communication, team-work and ICT.

All of our students have experience of WRL one day a week throughout the year and work towards Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications.

Challenge Day

Reach SchoolChallenge Days at REACH

Students at REACH School take part in challenge activities and adventures to help improve and develop personal and social skills through experiences involving co-operation, trust, problem solving, decision making, goal setting, communication, leadership, responsibility and reflection. Through Challenge Days, students develop particular skills and attitudes in a range of outdoor settings. Challenge Days include, Biking, Orienteeering, Mountain Walking, Fan Descender, Skiing, Kayaking, Sailing, High Rope Course and Rock Climbing.

REACH School is also a Princes Trust XL Club which helps students gain recognised qualifications to help with future life and employment. Working in tandem with the challenge days, this provides a great opportunity for students to gain qualifications outside of the curriculum. Students regularly evaluate their work during challenge days and they assess their own progress, particularly focusing on meeting their personal goals and identifying areas of weakness.
