14 – 16 Key Stage 4 School Partnerships

Lewisham Southwark College works in partnership with schools and local borough councils to provide alternative vocational routes to 14 – 16 year olds.
Our alternative school provision is helpful for students that are less suited to traditional curriculums offered by schools and would benefit from specialist vocational and academic training. Lewisham Southwark College offers a variety of proactive and hands-on services to engage young people and ensure they make the right choice for their future.
We only accept applications direct from schools, where the student is currently attending.


We offer a range of Key Stage 4 courses for learners aged 14-16. Our offer includes:

Work Related Learning:  One day per week day release Level 1 vocational courses. Options available in:
  • Beauty
  • Hospitality
  • Sports
  • Child Development
All courses deliver Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) based qualifications. Each student will be interviewed so that we can advise and guide individuals to the appropriate course.

  • 4 days a week EAL  (English as a second language) programme for new arrivals to the UK. Learners complete ESOL qualifications along with continuing to develop Maths and ICT skills. The College also offers an intensive one-year, full-time GCSE programme, with progression onto A Level programmes.
  • School Links one day a week Supported Learning:  For students with learning difficulties and / or disabilities. Students will work towards achieving personalised individual targets and help them to get used to being at college as well as developing their confidence, communication and personal and social skills. The aim is to develop their independence through practicing travelling, using the community, shopping / cooking, independent living skills and communication.
School Partnership Contact

The School Partnership Officer is the school’s first point of contact. The Officer will liaise with your school to coordinate the requirements you may have i.e. parent / carer evenings and other activities and services that may be required. The College wants students to succeed and we work closely with schools and parents to ensure this happens. We provide regular feedback with parent’s evenings, progress reports and attendance reports, so that students, parents and the school are clear about how the students are progressing.
