"It's relaxed and you can wear what you want." Keri

You can wear what ever you are comfortable in, so long as it's not offensive, for example, no t-shirts with discriminatory slogans on. And nothing too revealing! We also recommend that you dress appropriately for the weather and for activities, for example, you will need trainers and coats when we do outdoor activities.

If you need to get the bus or train to get to Liberty, just keep your tickets and hand them in at reception when you arrive. We will give your ticket back along with the money at break time. We have our own minibus so we will take you to and from off site activities, or for local activities, you can chose to meet us there.

We provide bread and sandwich fillings, so you can make yourself breakfast and lunch. The kitchens are there for you to use, we just ask that you clean up after yourselves. Please make sure you let us know if you have any allergies, so we can make sure we get the right food for you and prevent contamination. We also provide squash and hot drinks for free. We have a low cost vending machine if you want to buy any drinks or snacks.
More Information

We ask that you don't drink energy drinks before or during the course. This is because energy drinks give most people an energy boost, followed by a slump which can lead to mood swings, and this can negatively affect behaviour. It has been proven that they negatively affect your learning.

We are open Monday to Friday (we close on Bank Holidays). Your course will be 3 days a week, but we will let you know what days they will be when you start. Your course will be from 9am to 4pm, but you may have to come in earlier or finish later if we are on activities that are out of the area.

You have an hour for lunch from 12pm to 1pm. You also have a short break at 10.30am and 2pm. You can stay in the building or go off site during your breaks. (These times may change if you are out on activities)

Smoking cigarettes (including e-cigarettes/vapes) is not allowed in the building. There is a smoking area outside the building, and an ashtray is provided.

We are trying to get you ready for a work environment, so you should behave sensibly and appropriately, as you would do at work. We use rewards and praise for positive behaviour and have a points system where you can earn Westwood Cross gift vouchers. For more information see our Behaviour Management Policy.

We have pool tables, table football, air hockey and ping pong, and computers that you can use during your breaks. We also have wi-fi that you can access when you are not in lessons.
