SCHOOL OF PERSONALISED LEARNING
TO THE SCHOOL OF PERSONALISED LEARNING (SPL)
In addition to our higher-level academic programmes, St Vincent College is also one of the south’s leading providers of post-16 education for students who require specialised curriculum and support due to a range of special educational needs and disabilities.
EDUCATION FOR ALL
All students are offered meaningful and purposeful work experience and/or the opportunity to develop practical life and advocacy skills throughout their educational journey. In addition we are now part of a virtual employability hub in conjunction with Eastleigh College. This means that if your young person is more practical and keen to develop skills for work, then we can still offer a three year curriculum pathway that is better suited to their aspirations.

SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL AND MENTAL HEALTH (SEMH)
Our discrete SEMH provision provides specialist support for young people with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs.
Our philosophy of inclusion aims to support students to ensure their journey through our College is as smooth, enjoyable and anxiety free as possible. We deliver a holistic approach and bespoke timetable to each pupil supporting both their academic and emotional needs. The provision also provides students with a holistic, nurturing, learning environment along with bespoke timetables, all of which help ensure students are better equipped to manage their own emotions and behaviours whilst also making academic progress.
Stepping Stones is offered on a termly basis, our aim is that within this period of time, students are able to develop their confidence enough to begin transitioning back into an alternative provision within the SPL.

"St Vincent College was perfect for me. I learnt so many different things, and each course prepared me for university. The teachers for my subjects were so helpful, and I was always able to get help when and if I needed it. The UCAS lessons really prepared me to apply to University."
Beth Toon, Ex-Student
"The course showed me a diverse range of what the public services on the whole had to offer. These foundations led me in good stead to finally reaching the job I have always wanted to do."
