Preparation for Adulthood

Finished at School

Sixth Form has always excelled at preparing our students for adulthood, but we are always looking to improve ourselves, as this is what we also instil in our students.

The Finished at School Programme was a DfE–funded project that commenced in 2013 and was concluded in 2015.  It was launched to support more young people with autism to access further education and achieve a positive transition to adulthood. At the time the project was established, fewer than one in four young people with autism were continuing their education beyond school.

They appointed the Centre for Educational Development, Appraisal and Research (CEDAR) at the University of Warwick to evaluate the project. The evaluator’s remit was to determine the impact of the project: what difference it made to the young people, schools and colleges involved. 

This information has now been written up into a report and published.   

Ambitious about Autism developed a Finished at School guide. They also included an audit, which Sixth Form have completed to see where are strengths and weakness are, so moving forward every student has the opportunity to have a smooth transition to their next placement after Greenbank.
