Faced with a growing number of students wishing to stay at Moor House after the age of 16 and the request of many parents for sixth form education, Moor House embarked on the development of new teaching, therapy and residential care provisions for young people aged 16 to 19. Moor House Sixth Form College took in its first students in September 2012.
Sixth Form College Residential Campus, named after a former Principal: John Lea, provides a comfortable, modern and therapeutic home for 20 students. It has private bedrooms and communal spaces overlooking a beautiful and green landscape. In addition to subjects delivered by Moor House staff, all college students follow vocational training at Levels 1 or 2 at further education colleges in Tonbridge and Hadlow with specialist support from Moor House staff. Moor House College offers residential and day places to both male and female students.
Phase 1 of Moor House development plans was financed by the charity’s own reserves and a bank loan.
