St Francis Xavier Centre (SFX)
The St Francis Xavier Centre (SFX Centre) is a Specialist Resourced Provision for students with Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD). Students attached to the provision will study a range of qualifications in English, Maths and ICT as well as a course in Life Skills. In addition, students have the opportunity to develop their skills across a range of practical subject areas. Links between the provision and our mainstream Sixth Form are fostered to ensure that pupils feel part of the wider school community at Richard Challoner School. Students are expected to be enrolled for two consecutive, academic years (Year 12 and Year 13) and have the chance to develop links with other local colleges in their 2nd year.
Admission is open to students who:-
- Are the subject of an Education, Health and Care Plan
- Have a primary need which is considered to be a Moderate Learning Difficulty or similar needs
- Are currently in Year 11 and seeking a placement for next academic year
- Live in the Kingston or Richmond Borough (Although out of Borough students may be considered)
