Transition and Careers Evening

The event was aimed to support students and parents in making vital decisions regarding their future.

There was a wide range of organisations there to offer advice and guidance.

The Evening was a success and the college will be hosting these events on a annual basis.


Supported Interns


Students have settled in well and have started their Supported Internships with various employers.

They are all working hard towards their transition into paid employment.

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. It was thought provoking and interesting and the students engaged really well with the experience.

Grounds maintenance

It was a beautiful day on the 30th November and the students of The Hive College made the most of the opportunity to tidy up the school grounds. You can see by the before and after pictures how hard they worked and they all took great pride in the finished result.

Wrapping Christmas Presents

A number of the students from The HIVE College were at Birmingham City Mission on Friday 23rd November to wrap presents for families in need in the local area. They enjoyed every moment, they were treated to hot drinks and chocolate by the kind volunteers there.


Ageing Better Fund

Students have been involved in a 6 week gardening project. They have engaging with elderly residents at Boldmere Court Care home supporting each other to carry out gardening activities.

Students and residents have enjoyed the project and are excited about the next programme.

Butlins thanks to ORS & Aecom

On the 16th July 2018, 23 students took part in a residential week at Butlins inBognor Regis supported by staff from the college.  This was made possible by the very kind donations of two employers, Karl Ward form Office Recycling Solutions and David Bennett and Caren Duddy from Aecom.  During the week the students were encouraged to be as independent as possible, taking care of their own personal needs, budgeting their own money and making decisions for themselves.  They also had a fantastic time participating in all the activities Butlins offer and spending time with their friends.
