It takes commitment to change lives

About Us

Foundry College is a Pupil Referral Unit based in Wokingham serving pupils of statutory school age.  The College was created in September 2011 from an amalgamation of Local Authority services and provides placements for pupils who have been permanently excluded from schools as well as support services to prevent exclusion.  In addition Foundry College fulfils the Local Authority’s statutory requirement to provide support to pupils with medical needs who cannot attend school regularly.

We aim to create bespoke programmes for young people who face challenges and barriers to their education.  We offer academic, vocational and alternative educational programmes with the aim of aiding young people to re-engage with education.  The programmes prepare young people for life in further education or work.  Young people who come to the College may have been excluded, or are at risk of permanent exclusion.  They may face challenges such as poor or non attendance and may present behavioural, social or emotional problems.
