Tipton Campus is a provision with 35 places that offers support to key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 students. Places are available for students who are hard to reach and have a vulnerability that makes it difficult for them to access their education at one of the other four behavioural Campuses that form part of Sandwell Community School. The students come from schools across the borough that have been excluded or are at risk of being excluded.
Students are provided with a personalised timetable and work closely with their allocated mentor. Staff also work closely with parents to enable thier children to have positive outcomes, both educationally, socially and moving on to work or training.
