Children In Need

The STRIVE students went to TESCO for a cup of tea and some shopping and were kindly donated some cookery ingredients. They then set to and made lots of Chocolate Krispie Cakes and some Chocolate Tiffin, using sensory analysis to explore the ingredients.The students then sold the cakes and raised over £45.




Well Done Tony!

Tony is in his 3rd year at The Hive where he has taken part in a variety of very successful work placements.  Last year he was on placement at National Express and has secured a Supported Internship with them for the next academic year.  National Express have been so impressed with Tony’s dedication to his role with them that they have named a bus after him.

On Friday 9th September staff from National Express drove the bus to college where Tony, his family and his college friends celebrated this very exciting event.

All the staff at The Hive are very proud of Tony and what he has achieved and hope he has many happy journeys to and from college, on his very own bus!

Well done Tony.





The firefighters from Safeside@Eastside came in to meet the STRIVE students during their induction week. They were able to explore the uniform including the tunic, helmet, gloves and boots. They then went outside to listen to the sirens and spray some water. The students had great fun and some of the staff got a little wet!
