Welcome to Futures College.As an inclusive learning community we are determined to realise our vision and achieve our goals which are:
To raise standards and expectations in an inclusive learning environment
To be inspired, encouraged and challenged to reach our full potential
To be proud of and celebrate the achievements of our students and staff
At Futures we continually reflect on our practise and evaluate our performance; taking collective responsibility for learning together. The School is built on a founding vision to develop a world class learning environment in which all students can achieve in a range of academic, practical and technical subjects that have parity of esteem. We are committed to developing the whole individual child and to strengthening the emotional and social competences needed for today’s demanding lifestyles and work environments.
We aim for the highest quality teaching and learning every day and have some outstanding teaching facilities including a state of the art Upper College building opened in 2012, outstanding practical and technical learning areas, a new Learning Resource Centre, Maths and Computer Science area under construction and an excellent School computer network with on-line resources for students. Students come first and their learning is paramount – to learn, aspire and achieve is what we want for all the young people who join us at Futures Community College.
At Futures young people and their learning really do come first.
Our aim at Futures is that students are inspired, encouraged and challenged to reach their full potential, and, above all, to be proud of and celebrate their achievements, in a caring and secure environment. Students come first and learning is paramount, so our curriculum design supports this, with personalised pathways to equip students with the necessary skills to positively influence their own lives and society. Our Sixth Form offers opportunities for students to pursue traditional academic courses alongside practical and technical qualifications, including apprenticeships, all of which are equally valued, and delivered in industry standard facilities.
Our values are clear and as an inclusive learning community we are determined to realise our vision and achieve our goals. We continually reflect on our practise and evaluate our performance; taking collective responsibility for learning together.
We are constantly updating and improving our already excellent and state of the art facilities to provide students with the highest quality learning experience, an example is our newly created, professionally designed computer science suite and also our brand new Multi-Media Learning Resource Centre. Recognising that our post 16 students also need privacy and space for their personal study, we have created a new Sixth Form study area as well as a common room.
Our Mission statement sums up what we are all about at Futures Community College:
Know what you want
Know what you need
Know how to get there
Make it happen!
