Equality of Opportunity for All

Ofsted Rating



Welcome to RAPV, our new provision, set up to offer a vocational programme in construction, alongside a core curriculum of Maths, English and Science. We aim to provide an education for those students in Key Stage 4 who may be struggling with a traditional mainstream academic offer and who have an interest in a future in the construction sector. RAPV aims to provide a welcoming, stable and friendly environment for students. Together, we strive to bring the best out of all students, ensuring that they maximise their potential and are prepared to embark on a career in the construction sector.

Housed in a brand-new, purpose-built facility adjoining our Barkingside site, students benefit from superb accommodation and industry standard tools and resources.

At RAPV we recognise that students make the best academic progress when their emotional and social needs are met. Accordingly, we provide comprehensive pastoral care. When a student begins work with us they benefit from an initial meeting with our dedicated Pastoral Outreach & Welfare Manager who uses this time to assess their individual care needs. Resulting from this we are able to offer a diverse range of supportive interventions to ensure all students maximise their success.
