What courses are available
Studied – Independent Living Skills
“For four years at Northop I studied ‘Life Skills ‘, it was amazing! I learnt many new skills and made new friends.
I loved cooking tasty meals, improving IT skills and housekeeping but there was so much more to this course. I really enjoyed going out in the community to shop, meals out and trying sport activities. But mostly I loved the staff, they were brilliant! I felt supported by caring staff who helped me to grow and become more independent. This course has helped with my confidence and where I would like to go in the future and hopefully find a job I love.”
Studied – A Level English, Drama, Maths and French
Currently – Presenter and News Correspondent for the BBC
“I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do in the future, so I chose a range of different subjects to study at A Level. I’m now employed by the BBC as a Presenter and News Correspondent and studying at Yale Sixth gave me the confidence and skills to go onto university. I made some amazing friends, had some great teachers who I’ll never forget and had a great time in Wrexham!
“I look back on my time at Yale with pride and fondness and will never forget it!”
