Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to the Hive College website.

At the Hive College we are dedicated to do all we can to help our students develop and succeed in their aspirations, enjoy their time at college and develop the important qualities they need to aid their transition into adult life.

We set high expectations; students must be willing to work hard and are encouraged to take pride in what they achieve.  We have developed a safe college environment where everyone is encouraged to believe in themselves and reach their full potential.

We have developed an exciting and inclusive curriculum to meet the diverse needs of all our students who attend the Hive College.   We have developed outstanding relationships with employers across the Birmingham area and within local communities to assist us in providing the best outcomes to meet our student’s individual needs.

We hope you find our website interesting and informative.  If you require any more information contact the college by telephone or email.

Students take part in Birmingham Repertory Theatre non verbal drama ‘Over The Rainbow.

On 11th January we had a visit from the Rep theatre and Strive and Thrive students took part in an immersive, sensory piece of drama based on ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ Students could interact with the sets , the costumes, the characters and the props as they moved around in a carousel experience.
