Transport Arrangements

Transport Arrangements


If your child is entitled to free transport to and from the College, this will be arranged by College Admin, through either our own drivers or an outside taxi company. Please ensure that your child is ready for collection, if they are late, this impacts on other pupils who are using the same transport, thus making them all late for the start of their College day.

For primary pupils, we ask you to make sure that someone is at home to receive him/her after each session.

Please do not ask the driver to make any changes to the transport arrangements; any such requests should be made through the College. Also any information about your child that the College should be aware of should not be relayed via the drivers – please call us direct to speak to the relevant member of staff.

Please note: The taxi company does not solely work for the College and have their own taxi runs to do which they fit around our requests. Because of this you cannot request a certain driver. Your child will, of course, not be in a taxi with anyone other than fellow pupils and the driver.

Please inform the College on 0118 334 1510 if there are any occasions when transport is not required, for example illness or medical appointments. All drivers (and chaperones when used) are DBS checked and badged by an appropriate authority, and all vehicles are suitably licensed for this work.

If you have any concerns regarding transport arrangements, please telephone the College on 0118 334 1510.

Ofsted commented;

“You care deeply about the pupils and are determined to make sure that your school provides the nurturing environment that they need.”

“Pupils are happy at your school, they say that there is always someone to talk to and that their views are valued. Parents and carers praise the improvements in their children’s behaviour and attitudes to learning.”

“You and your team are acutely aware of the importance of ensuring that every pupil is safeguarded from harm.”



Student Outcomes 2018-19

The Staff and Management Committee are delighted to celebrate the results of our 2018-2019 cohort.

Foundry College is more than a school where staff deliver the curriculum.  We are an environment where pupils are able to learn for life through a wealth of different experiences and enrichment opportunities. Staff support our pupils not only as highly qualified experts in their different curriculum fields, but also as daily mentors. Our educational expertise,  personal commitment and dedication to improving the life experiences of  vulnerable young people make significant contributions to building pupils' resilience and fostering a culture of mutual respect and co-operation.

Our primary focus is to work hard with pupils to help them secure the best outcomes they can and to improve their chance of success in further education, training or employment.

Year 2

One student was eligible for KS1 SATs and was assessed to be at the National standard.

Year 6

One of two students eligible for KS2 SATs was assessed to be at the National standard.  The second student was disapplied by their home school.

Year 11

The summer 2019 cohort once again exceeded realistic expectation with 15 of 19 students achieving at least one level 2 qualification.

All 19 students were entered for a qualification in both English and Maths, with 9 students achieving GCSE passes in each subject and 7 students achieving passes in both GCSE English and GCSE Maths.  8 students were entered for double Science, with 7 students achieving at least one grade 4 and 4 students achieving passes in both GCSEs.

Qualifications were also obtained in a further thirteen other subjects, including a range of traditional academic GCSEs and a selection of vocational options.

Thank you to everyone involved in the partnership without which these excellent outcomes for our pupils would not have been possible.
