After very careful consideration, Sir John Deane’s Sixth Form College has taken the very difficult decision not to re-open the Adult Education and Leisure Centre provision at this time.
The priority for the College must be to offer full time education for Sixth Form students and in order to achieve this all resources and planning must be entirely focused on delivering the curriculum.
The College does not have the capacity to safeguard the wellbeing, safety and education of 16-19 students and also offer Adult Education and Leisure Centre services.
It is hoped that in the future, the College will be able to make a contribution to our local community via the provision of the swimming pool to primary schools and the playing fields to local sports clubs. A review will take place in May 2021.
Sadly, the College does not foresee a time when Adult Education will reopen.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all former adult students and customers for their loyalty and engagement with the College.
