The Key Stage 4 Provision on College Street is a Pupil Referral Unit which takes students who have been permanently excluded or at risk of permanent exclusion from mainstream schools. Launchpad KS4 accepts referrals from all St Helens secondary schools with most learners following a two or three day timetable and the rest of the week undertaking vocational based work with other commissioned Alternative Education Providers. There is also an opportunity for some year 11 students to attend the Unit full time.
Students at the Unit will have the opportunity to undertake accredited courses including GCSE's. In 2017 OFSTED graded the Unit as 'GOOD'.
