We will be holding an open morning in school on Tuesday 20th October at 9.30am.

We would request that you wear appropriate PPE while on the school site.  We can only admit limited numbers per household and you will not be able to enter any classrooms.

If you would like to book a place, please contact Karen Hayward on admin@linksec.org.uk.  Please note that in light of restrictions on numbers overall, you may not be guaranteed a tour.

Further dates will be posted in due course.

Sixth Form

Students at The Link Secondary School often choose to stay on after their Year 11 studies and join our Sixth Form in order to prepare for their adult lives. We also welcome students from other schools who meet our admission criteria.

The Sixth Form provides for students who wish to access mainstream courses and who continue to require support for their speech, language and communication needs. As with the main school, students are taught in small classes and are supported by experienced professionals to facilitate students’ access to the curriculum and to ensure that their learning needs are met.

A core academic curriculum is provided to all students in the Sixth Form, as well as The Access Programme which includes social skills, social communication, employability skills, and independent living skills. Speech and language therapy is an integral part of the Sixth Form provision.

Student life in the Sixth Form is largely about the transition to adulthood. Students in the Sixth Form do not wear school uniform. They have their own learning and social spaces within the secondary school.

Students work towards achieving qualifications in mathematics, English and ICT, which allow students to develop important skills for daily life and employment that they can apply to real-life situations.

Our students also have weekly access to a variety of vocational courses offered at Nescot, our local FE college partner. The college is situated in Epsom, a short minibus trip from the school. Students attend the college courses appropriate to their level of ability and their interests.
