Real life experiential learning
The Bee Hive is a vocational Sixth Form provision for young people with learning difficulties. We are part of a secondary school called Northgate School Arts College Academy Trust located one mile away. We are unique in that we have a café, conference hall, commercial kitchen, second hand shop and a well -being centre. This innovative and inspirational business centre provides our students with first hand real life experiential learning. The chosen vocational pathways of each young person provide distinctive industry focused learning environments. The staff at The Bee Hive are a dedicated and passionate team who strive only for the best outcomes for the young people that attend the provision.
Parents are very pleased with the progress their children make. They comment on the excellent progress their children have made in their academic work and personal skills…
The facilities are open to the local community and general public to provide an environment to help students develop the skills to move confidently into post school. They work alongside our staff and volunteers in the Cafe, Shops, Kitchen, Conferencing and Wellbeeing areas, learning a variety of duties in each area, raising their self esteem and confidence.

More than a school
The Bee Hive is more than any other school: we offer educational provision to students with special requirements.

We believe that all our students must develop the opportunity to develop a personal worth and self confidence in order to reach their full potential.
