About the School

Somerville House has its own suite of vocational workshops including a sports area, an art room and a life skills kitchen. Students have access to a quiet space for prayer and reflection and a breakout space when they need time out from their studies.

The Supported Engagement Programmes at Somerville House offer 4 distinct routes for students aged 16-24 to re-engage with education or to prepare them for employment in addition to the Princes Trust TEAM Programme.

Students on these programmes will benefit from:

  • A small campus environment
  • Staff who are experienced in supporting students with SEMH needs
  • Internal work experience placements
  • A supported transition into further study or work.

Who are these courses for?

Students on these courses may have:

  • Missed part of their schooling due to ill health or challenging personal circumstances
  • Have an EHCP and/or SEMH (Social, Emotional and Mental Health) needs
  • Not achieved the grades they needed at school in order to progress
  • Not decided what they would like to do in the future
  • Anxiety or concerns about starting a FE course and would benefit from a small campus and staffing team
