  • Crosshill School Expansion Post 16

    09/04/2018

    Crosshill Special School Expansion 09/04/2018 Last year, Blackburn with Darwen Council went out to consultation on a plan to extend Crosshill Special School to 19 year olds. Crosshill School, which shares a site with Blackburn Central High School, will increase in age range from 11-16 years to 11-19 years and take on an extra 30 pupils as part of a staggered expansion from September 2018 to September 2020. The increase in the age range will be undertaken in increments with the first lot of Year 12 students starting from September 1 as the age range increases to 11-17 with an extra 10 learners in year 12. The following year, the age range will go up again to 11-18 with 10 pupils in year 12 and a further 10 in year 14. Finally, September 2020 would see the completion of the expansion with an age range of 11-19 made up of 10 pupils in years 12, 13 and 14. Approving the proposal, executive member for schools and education, Cllr Dave Harling, said: “The expanded facility will be based at the school’s current site, as well as Shadsworth Hub where Crosshill currently provides life skills development work. “The learners within the post 16 provision will gain access to the therapeutic environment and expertise already implemented within Crosshill Special School. “The emphasis of the post-16 provision is to provide learners with the skills that they need to become as successful as they are able to be in terms of independence, further education, life skills, employment and living a good quality adult life with an emphasis on the contribution they can bring to their local community.” The curriculum and course offer will be developed to meet the personalised and specific progression needs of the individual learner but, in the main, it will centre on a semi-formal curriculum offer based around life skills, independent living and therapy based support.
