About BedZED

The BedZED centre is located near Beddington Park which students regularly enjoy as well as strong links with the community. BedZED can accommodate between 30-40 students aged 16+.

Students and staff enjoy being part of the local community and students are supported in work opportunities with many local businesses and community groups including Sainsbury’s Purley Way, Sutton Community Farm, Carshalton Community Allotment, All Saints Church Coffee Morning, CEX Croydon, Frank Di Lusso Hair Salon, Riverside Community Centre and Café and the David Weir Leisure Centre. 

 

 

Outcomes for learners are outstanding, teaching, learning and assessment are excellent and the extremely diverse programmes that meet learners’ individual needs, interests and aspirations, prepare them very well for life after College.
