Transition

Moving on from Charlton Park Academy

 

In order to prepare our students for life post-school the provision in the sixth form includes independence and life-skills as well as a wide range of accredited courses. During their time in the Sixth Form most students have the opportunity of taster experiences and courses at local college provisions.

 

Curriculum provision includes work related learning, and some students have work experience.  Transition planning is also essential.  All of this should give every student the best possible platform for their future life.  Many of our students leave Charlton Park Academy and take courses at local colleges, whilst some transfer to more specialist provisions.  Support for other options is also available, including application for apprenticeships and employment.

It is all about helping every individual maximise their potential, and to have opportunities and choice for their life after school.  To achieve this, the academy works in partnership with other professionals and organisations, including both Prospects and Greenwich Adult Social Care.
