Riverside Way

Riverside Way is carefully tailored to deliver a variety of outcomes, it combines academic and practical skills for students to evolve with confidence in their futures. The positioning of the site, and the environment encourages the students to become independent and responsible by using public transport to get there, and prepares them for a variety of working conditions.

The site offers a therapeutic setting, as it takes students out of the classroom and  provides a rural, and peaceful environment for learning. Riverside allows for all curriculum areas to be delivered and provides a platform for pathway options and core subjects.

The image below shows some of the skills our students are able to learn at Riverside Way.  They have been busy building a workshop with additional storage space.  One local company, SIG Roofing in Leicester, have very kindly donated over £1000 worth of roofing materials and delivered it free of charge! They made a massive difference to the project!

Students have plastered and painted walls, created a work top and installed vices. We now have a whiteboard and it is looking like a usable workspace.

More recently, Enstruct training have very kindly donated a whole stack of bricks and other building materials which our students will be using to learn bricklaying skills.
