School Description

Norton College is an independent special school for pupils with behavioural, emotional and social needs. It opened in 2010 and is owned by Crucible Education Ltd. The school was last inspected in September to October 2014. The school’s aim is to give the most challenged and challenging young people the sort of educational, social and vocational skills that will enable them to integrate into society. Inspection report: Norton College, 1–3 May 2018 Page 12 of 15 The school provides for up to 80 young people who are not attending mainstream secondary schools or, if over 16 years old, are not going to a mainstream sixth-form college full time. It is registered to take pupils between 11 and 19 years. The school uses the following alternative providers for some of its outdoor education activities: Acton Mill Care Farm, Wick Grange Care Farm, Bridge Training Centre (Gloucester) and Gloverspiece Minifarm. Most pupils are from White British backgrounds but a few are from minority ethnic groups. Twelve pupils are looked after by carers and the local authority. There are 79 boys and girls on roll. The pupils currently on roll are aged between 11 and 19 years of age. They all have a background of disrupted education. All pupils have an education, health and care plan. Some pupils currently come from local vocational providers to take part in engineering and a range of recreational options aimed at widening their experiences.
