Specialist Inclusive Learning Centre

The West SILC partnership at our academy contains a thriving group of young people, educated at Co-op Academy Priesthorpe, to meet their academic and social needs. Our SILC students take part in all whole school activities and are welcomed as part of the cohort of the school.

Although some students require a different pathway, the level of achievement and success they attain from being part of the partnership is fantastic. Many students leave with accreditation’s and qualifications alongside their mainstream counterparts, that reflect their efforts and hard work as well as the wonderfully inclusive atmosphere at Co-op Academy Priesthorpe.

We strive to help our students leave us as independent as possible and celebrate their numerous accomplishments.
