About 7KS South Park Enterprise College

They have begun to associate school with feelings of fear, frustration and failure. Some have already given up learning.  Facilities The College, which opened in April 2005, is housed in a new purpose-built facility on the outskirts of town. It comprises of two units, one of which houses a large catering kitchen which has the dual purpose of providing a work placement and the development of independent living skills.
