OUR CURRICULUM

 
 

What do we offer?

We  offer KS3 and KS4 long and short term, full and part-time placements. We focus on the core subjects of Maths, English and Science, taught by subject specialist teachers.

 

Key Stage 3
At KS3 we aim to offer a broad and balanced curriculum. As an Independent School, we give pupils experience in linguistic, mathematical, scientific, technological, human and social, physical and aesthetic and creative education. We design our curriculum to broadly follow the National Curriculum, taking into account the individual needs of each of our students, to provide as many opportunities as possible for developing knowledge, skills and literacy.

Key Stage 4
Our curriculum provides students with the opportunity to achieve qualifications in:

  • GCSE English Language

  • GCSE English Literature

  • GCSE Mathematics

  • GCSE Science


We are also able to offer the following at KS4 (*dependent on students’ prior learning):

  • · BTEC Health & Social Care

  • · GCSE Geography

  • · GCSE Statistics

     

  • Students can also be entered for Functional Skills qualifications in English and Maths at the appropriate level to build confidence in these subjects.

 

  • We aim to offer a broad and balanced curriculum for all students and in addition to core subjects, we offer learning opportunities in humanities, art, life skills (incorporating PSHE, RSE and CEIAG) and ICT.

 

  • We also provide recreational education and enrichment opportunities, designed to develop students’ character, independence, social skills and resilience.

 

  • Students will have the opportunity to achieve AQA Unit awards where relevant and appropriate to reward achievement and motivate, encourage, engage, support and raise their self esteem.

 

  • An optional ‘Drawing and Talking’ course: a therapeutic intervention designed to support young people with their mental well-being, delivered by a trained practitioner is also part of our offer

  • As we are a new provision we currently have no academic data to display, watch this space, Academic data will be published here following the June 2023 examination series.
