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.

The LIVE students were given the opportunity to participate in a residential trip to Butlins in Minehead on the 19th June 2017.  We took 15 students and 9 staff on a 5 day break, the students took part in activities such as swimming, Go Karting and Ten Pin Bowling and as the weather was so good, trips to the beach.  The students also thoroughly enjoyed the evening entertainment where they sang and danced along to tribute bands such as Take That and participated in activities put on by the Red Coats.  All students and staff had a fabulous time, it is amazing to see how the students grow in confidence in a short space of time and come back to college with wonderful memories of the time they have spent with their friends.
