Welcome to Gold
Rachel - Class Teacher
Hi, I’m Rachel. I am from Australia and moved to the UK in September 2019 and have now worked at College Park for a year, last year in White Class and this year in Gold Class.
Students in gold class are given more responsibility as we are now some of the oldest in the school. We are preparing to leave for college and focus on building functional English, Maths, and ICT skills to prepare students for life after school. Most students are preparing to take some form of functional skills exams this year and we are busy practicing our reading, writing, speaking and listening, mathematic and ICT skills.
Usually, Gold class students take lots of trips out into the community to practice independence and adulthood skills and we are looking forward to doing this again soon! We have been working hard at our adulthood and independence skills through cooking, flat skills, and employability skills such as answering the phone.
