College Hall is a pupil referral unit serving Bracknell Forest and the surrounding area. The unit has 56 full time places for young people in Key Stages 3 and 4 who have experienced difficulty in maintaining a place in mainstream education. Through providing a safe and secure environment, an experienced and supportive staff team, a flexible curriculum and proactive working with schools, parents and carers, we aim to get these young people back on track. College Hall also makes provision for a small group of young people who are persistently unable to attend their mainstream school placement due to factors such as acute anxiety associated with school attendance or other mental health needs. These pupils attend a satellite building on the main site at College Hall called ‘The Cottage’. Pupils will attend either full or part time and may gradually reintegrate from 1-1 teaching.
