I am proud of the staff and students who work with me in my role here as Principal.
We are set in a woodland campus in Bromley where we support students aged 19-25 with moderate to profound learning disabilities.
At Nash, we are ambitious, innovative and forward-thinking and work towards a simple vision of improving the life sum of the young people who join us. We work to enable our young people to learn the skills they need for adult life by adding skills and knowledge and removing barriers to a fulfilling life.
Meeting the individual needs of our students is what drives our approach to education and learning. Our students follow a personalised programme that is designed to stretch and challenge, helping to develop their confidence and independence.
For some this may include qualifications, supported internships and employment, for others a high quality programme of work experience may lead to community volunteering as part of our new social enterprise venture, Nash Challenge Club.
For all our students our curriculum creates opportunities for learning that meet their individual needs and aspirations and enable them to move on with a clear destination in mind.
We don’t work in isolation
Our staff are a huge part of our vision. Without the dedication, professionalism and talent of everyone at the college we could not deliver the all-round personalised provision that makes us different. Our team includes qualified teachers and teaching assistants as well as specialist therapists, nursing and care staff.
We work closely with families and outside agencies and have a student pastoral team available at the end of a phone throughout a young person’s time with us.
We are also assisted by Poppy, our trainee therapy dog. Labrador Poppy is learning to support young people with a range of needs and is a very popular member of our team.
Our website provides only a snapshot of college life, we would be delighted to show you around the college and tell you more about our approach to learning, please get in touch to arrange a visit.
