"The Cadbury College mission is to provide high quality education leading to excellent higher education and employment prospects for our diverse community of students.

At the end of Year 11 young people face a choice between staying on at school or progressing to a college. We believe that they benefit greatly from a change of institution and that transferring to a sixth from college such as Cadbury offers them great advantages.

World Mental Health Day 2017

World Mental Health Day 2017

Cadbury college has been spreading awareness of the 25th anniversary of World Mental Health Day. In the LRC students had a chance to make keychains and talk about mental health. According to the NHS one in four people are affected by a mental illness. It is great to see more people discussing this topic as mental health issues affect many people on a daily basis.

Figures in 2016, from the NHS showed that almost six in one hundred people suffered from Generalised Anxiety Order and by talking more openly about Mental Health issues, people feel more comfortable seeking the help they may need. The progress made by society in regards to mental health awareness has improved drastically. Not only are more people getting help but more people are starting to realise that mental health can be just as serious as physical health.

Bob Mercer Visits Cadbury College

Bob Mercer

Last week Cadbury college product design students had first-hand experience from a very talented Woodturner. Students got a chance to speak to Bob Mercer who is a professional Woodturner. As well as getting to see Bob share his craft students had an opportunity to get tips and tricks when dealing with wood for their own projects. 

A bit about Bob…

I have always enjoyed

working with wood and a few years ago enrolled on a woodworking course at the local high school. Whilst on the course I noticed a lathe in the corner of the workshop and asked if I could use it. The class teacher helped me to make a bowl. I WAS HOOKED! I made enquiries regarding qualifications in woodturning and over the next four years, I completed four City and Guilds courses in woodturning.

Cadbury College Earth Angels

Cadbury College has started a new year and a group of students have been involved in welcoming new students to the college. The Cadbury college earth angels have been going around college to promote kindness and making the transition between school and college easier for newcomers. By walking around and speaking with new students and helping others who may be struggling with the change, the earth angels have been working really hard.
