Welcome to Montgomery Road Campus

Projects and Programmes

Montgomery Road Campus continues to use external providers to ensure we meet the needs of every pupil and everyone has a broad and balanced curriculum as well as personal enrichment.

We have extended our “well-being Wednesday” offer across the week.  We now offer on-site ELSA sessions 1-1, art group, STEAM projects and home cooking skills on site as well as exercise well-being options off-site. School nurse drop-in sessions occur monthly and a weekly PSHE programme.

Next term is our group volunteering is to develop the sensory and kitchen gardens. This builds on our success last year of joining the RHS garden school scheme and growing vegetables and herbs in pots; and the weekly sessions volunteering at Deben care farm, Brickmaker’s Wood and the Why Try? Resilience programme as part of our commitment to group Thrive development. We believe team work and strengthened relationships are the key to success, as it helps reconnect us to education and the world around us.

Our joint working with Westbridge Academy allows us to offer a wider curriculum and access to specialist facilities; it also helps pupils prepare for reintegration to mainstream college post 16.

We are excited about a selection of programmes we have coming up as a result of funding we have been awarded as part of the Rate Card Event.  The programmes, purchased from All Together, will be used at Parkside Academy, Lindbergh Campus, Westbridge Academy and Montgomery Road Campus.

Ignite Your Genius – embed to existing PHSE to develop sense of self and sense of the world around us with clear links to existing curriculum and/or a community.

Enterprise Incubator – This programme involves groups of pupils designing a solution to a real day problem and then planning and printing a promotional t-shirt (which is then printed professionally).  To run in March or April 2020.

Mock Interview Project – Interview preparations, interview skills training and mock interviews for pupils in Years 10 and 11, taking place in April 2020.  This programme compliments the Genius Plus programme.

Genius Plus – ideal for students who have lost focus but are interested in reflecting on their strengths and challenges and want to explore their passion and purpose, with some goal setting to achieve identified goals.  Taking place in October 2019, this is an opportunity for Year 11 students to have an individual coaching session and to complete a personality profile to explore and help raise aspirations.
