Destinations Post 19

Our leavers have transitioned very successfully to a number of colleges in recent years.

  • Cheadle and Marple College; Choices Course and Supported Internships
  • Seashell College
  • David Lewis College
  • Bridge College
  • Aquinas College

Pure Innovations opened their own college provision in the centre of Stockport in September 2022 offering educational programmes to develop future life skills and employability skills. Detials can be found on their website.

Cheadle & Marple and Aquinas College are our first destinations for most students if they can meet the individual students needs. If local colleges cannot meet the need, then independent providers will assess students. 

It is essential that parents visit colleges while students are in year 13 prior to the high needs assessment panels commencing. The high needs assessment panel meeting is where Heaton leavers will be discussed regarding appropriate future provision with local colleges.

Contact details and course information for local post 10 provision in Stockport can be found below.
