The Premises

Our Silsoe On Track Education Centre was formerly Bramingham Park Study Centre, established in 1993 by On Track’s Head of Services. It became part of On Track in September 2007 and moved from Bramingham Park Church to Wrest Park in Silsoe in January 2010.

The centre specialises in working with young people who are vulnerable, including school refusers and students with medical and emotional problems. Each individual student has a key worker. This personalised system links academic studies to behaviour targets or social skills. Through their Personalised Learning program, weekly reviews allow progress to be communicated to carers or parents regularly.



The team consists of the Head of Centre, Teaching and Learning Manager, Pastoral Manager and a team of six full time teachers and tutors, two part-time tutors and one full time LSA. The subjects taught at the centre include; Maths, Science, English, ICT, PHSE, Humanities, Art, Preparation for Working Life, Physical Education, Catering and Citizenship.

On Track has developed its vocational provision using additional premises at Wrest Park. Building 57, more affectionally known as the ‘Black Barns’ now houses our Vocational area. Fully equipped with classrooms and workshops this developing facility will allow BTEC Construction Skills to be taught at Entry level 3, alongside BTEC Level 1 Business Admin, BTEC Level 1 Engineering and BTEC LEvel 1 Home Cooking Skills.
