Sixth Form Facilities

Our Sixth form has access to a range of unique teaching spaces.

Fuse Media Podcast Studio
Collingwood Recording Studio
Fuse Media Centre

Since September 2020 our Sixth Form students have been based at Fuse Media Centre in Prudhoe. Fuse Media Centre was built in 2011 and is a multi use facility with a dance studio, radio station, sound recording studio, cinema, community cafe and STEM room. Our students will be developing their digital and media skills at Fuse Media Centre.

The facility is perfect for employability and enterprise opportunities. Our students will be able to develop their social and independent skills whilst learning about business and the world of work. 

Finally our students have access to a dedicated space at Collingwood where they can socialise with their peers and engage with specialist teachers to progress their academic learning. 

Stomping Grounds

Stomping Grounds is a Forest School Provision located in Dukes Hagg Wood, Prudhoe. 

Students access the facilities on a weekly basis. At Stomping Grounds, they  work in all aspects of Forest School education, led by specialist staff from the provision. The Forest School activities will also help in developing students’ resilience, team building, communication and social interaction.
