Thornton College

Support

At Thornton College we have staff who will make sure that you can get to your classes at the right time.

Staff are also available to help you use the canteen at breaks and lunchtimes, to help you in the classroom, and to make sure that you keep up with your work.

Who can help me at College?

When you come along to talk about coming to College, we will explain how we can help you at College, and what will happen every day. Our staff meet students when they arrive at College every day.

They will make sure that you get to the right place at the right time, and if required, will spend time with you and your friends at break times. They can help you with whatever support you might need, such as eating, or going to the toilet.

Our Support Workers will help you in your classes. They will help you to understand the lessons and can help you with writing, spelling and organising your work.

Do I have to do exams?

A lot of your work will be developing practical skills, so you may not need to sit an exam. For example you might need to show how you would travel on a bus, or prepare a snack.
