Welcome to Boldon School
It is our vision to provide to you, as our Post-16 students, vocational courses that you want, delivered well, so that you can build practical skills for employment at the same time as developing academic abilities for your future progression.
We commit ourselves to ensuring that you have access to resources and excellent teaching which will support you in achieving your goals. Our teachers will challenge you to think for yourself with a strong emphasis on active learning in the classroom, workshop, salon or sports centre.
Boldon School has a proud tradition of providing excellent pastoral care and we know that on joining year 12 you are ready to grow and become more independent, it is our job to support you in doing this.
We welcome applications from external students who wish to join us in September 2015 as well as those who are existing students at Boldon School.
Mrs. E Hayes
We have fantastic modern facilities that provide an excellent environment for our courses, whether you are working in a practical lesson or requiring quiet study time. Each vocational area has an appropriate learning space – i.e. sports centre and multipurpose all weather pitches; art studio; IT suite/workshop; hair dressing and beauty salons. All classrooms and the Post-16 study room have IT facilities.
As Post-16 Students you are welcome to use your common room throughout the day when not in timetabled lessons. Food and drink are available from the Bistro which offers a wide selection of hot and cold drinks, snacks and meals. There are also several vending machines located around the site.
You are welcome to come and visit us, chat to staff and have a look around.
