College Integration
At Northfield School we offer students aged 14-16 the opportunity to take part in taster days at City of Oxford College. A Taster day allows students to experience a mainstream college setting and also provides them with ideas and prospects of different vocational courses they may want to consider in the future.

From these taster days students are then given the opportunity to access day release college courses one day a week for their chosen subject in Year 11.

The courses that the college offer for our students are:
  • Computer Games & Digital Media  
  • Catering                  
  • Hair & Beauty     
  • Health & Social Care    
  • Creative Arts  
  • Public Services 
  • Football
  • Construction
  • Motor Vehicle
In all of these courses they will be working towards a Level 1 Qualification in their chosen subject. Having this opportunity helps our students to have independence, learn and acquire a new skills set and gain confidence in a new learning environment and setting.  Many of the students involved in this process find it very beneficial as it also helps them decide what careers and future prospects are available to them.
Many of these students choose to continue with a full time or part time college course as a Post 16 option having left Northfield School in Year 11.
