Welcome to Woodhouse College
Woodhouse is a popular and oversubscribed sixth form college in Barnet. Our students are aged 16-18 years and come from over 150 different schools across North London.
Our students are able and hard-working. They have done well at GCSE and aim to do likewise at A level. Almost all go on to university. The College acts as a bridge from school to university, giving students a chance to grow in confidence and to develop independent learning skills.
All our students study A levels. We offer a wide range of subjects, and students can study them in almost any combination.
Additional Learning Support
Additional Learning Support (ALS) is part of our policy of providing an excellent range of support services for students to facilitate the best possible learning environment. ALS is extra help available to any student who has a different or additional learning need.
Young Carers may be eligible for additional academic support and financial assistance from 16-19 Bursary Fund. A young carer may be referred for one-to-one support with an appropriate student progress manager if they feel that they may benefit from this additional support.
How do students make their additional educational needs known?
- Initially on the application form – students are asked to disclose if they have any special circumstances which could affect their learning. This will not affect their chances of coming to Woodhouse.
- At interview the students will be asked if they require any additional help learning. This will not affect the outcome of the interview if Woodhouse has the appropriate facilities and/or resources to meet the student’s needs.
- In the first few days at Woodhouse the students will be asked if they have any special circumstances or medical conditions which the college could help to support.
- By cross college screening of all students.
- By self-referral of students.
- By referral of personal tutors, subject tutors and senior tutors.
What can Additional Learning Support offer the student?
- An assessment for a specific learning difficulty e.g. dyslexia.
- A referral for assessment to an outside agency.
- Additional one-to-one or small group support in areas such as study skills, time-management or specific learning difficulties.
- Training in specific IT software.
- Liaison with home, and with personal, subject or senior tutors if necessary.
- Access to specialist resources.
- The opportunity to reach their full academic potential whilst at Woodhouse College.
