Welcome to Post 16@Freebrough
At Freebrough Academy we are committed to developing and delivering a high quality offer to young people. Our Post16@Freebrough provision within our state of the art enterprise centre is situated in the heart of East Cleveland.
Post16@Freebrough offers a focused range of courses for 100 students, centred on our specialisms of business and enterprise and engineering with a focus on the key areas of growth in the Tees Valley over the next 10 to 15 years. Our status as a regional hub for the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy drives our curriculum offer and the opportunities available to our students and our partner organisations.
The Enterprise Centre is central to delivering a high quality education to young people through the creation of a business environment; a place for ‘incubating’ young entrepreneurs in a facility that has a professional, business like feel. Our courses lead to four distinct career pathways; health and social care, engineering, creative media and enterprise and entrepreneurship. Along with associated A level courses our curriculum and accredited routes are designed to support students in a seamless transition to Higher Education, further training and employment.
The environment at Post16@Freebrough instils in students the importance of having the skills, attitudes and approaches required to be successful in the ever changing world of work.
We are on an exciting journey in our vision to offer unique experiences and opportunities that will result in successful outcomes for young people at level two and three.
