Learners from South Gloucestershire and Stroud College’s ‘Chase’ department were over the moon to receive a letter from the Queen in response to their Platinum Jubilee celebration wishes.
The Chase, part of South Gloucestershire and Stroud College, provides a dedicated, self-contained educational resource in the Stroud Valleys. The main focus is on nurturing and developing young people with high support needs, some of whom may have a passion for catering, hospitality and enterprise, whilst also gaining the skills required to succeed and contribute within society.
The students created a beautiful collage of the Queen and sent her hand-written letters as part of learning about culture and celebrations. The learners congratulated and thanked the Queen and invited her to join them at College for tea and cake!
SGS College works in partnership with South Gloucestershire Council to develop exciting opportunities for independent living and employment in a variety of industries. From the moment of entry into the Chase, staff work with learners to prepare and place them in work experience settings in line with their aspirations and are committed to providing an inclusive curriculum and the emotional and personal support needed.
The Chase has a mock flat so that learners can gain confidence in independent living and learn to manage confidently within the home. SGS College recognise that every individual is unique and so each study programme is adapted to suit the learner’s specific requirements in line with their EHCP outcomes.
