All Bedelsford School students extend their education experience either by joining our new Sixth form or when they leave Bedelsford School at the end of Year 11. On occasions students may move to a new home or they may progress to be able to attend a Mainstream provision before they reach Year 11.

Until 2015 most Year 11 students opted for an experience in another school as the move to college was a big step at that age.  The schools that they selected varied according to the borough they came from and what their primary presenting educational need was. Since that date we have our own Sixth Form provision.

From this September (2019) we have 20 Post-16 students. Our aim is to ensure that students reach their full potential and maximise their independence, communication, mobility, thinking and social/emotional skills in preparation for the life that is ahead of them.

In 2016 one student left and went to West Hammersmith College.

In 2017 three students left and went to Orchard Hill College (Beaconsfield), Treloar College in Alton and Aurora College in Wandsworth.

In 2018 two students joined Orchard Hill College, one went to Wyvern House in Uxbridge and one to Beaconsfield in New Malden.

In 2019 four students went to Orchard Hill College.

The school is truly ‘outstanding’ indeed and we don’t mean just in the sense of how Ofsted have classified it.
