Our curriculum is designed to meet our principal aim, which is to enable every student to re-engage and achieve in their learning.
Our intention is:
To have a broad, balanced, and holistic curriculum which provides a range of academic and vocational pathways (with recognised qualifications) to further education, training and employment whilst also providing therapeutic and pastoral support to enable them to develop as an individual.
To have a curriculum which provides academic challenge based on the student’s prior educational experience and starting point on entry to our school.
To have a curriculum which engages our students, makes learning enjoyable and is flexible enough to respond to the need for change and provide individualised programmes where required.
To help students acquire knowledge, skills, and practical abilities, including those of problem solving, teamwork and decision making whilst developing resilience to overcome hurdles, cope with setbacks and the self-confidence to try new things and learn from their mistakes.
To help students understand the world in which they live.
To foster the skills and understanding needed for the students to take their place successfully in modern British society.
To understand and respect social, moral, spiritual, and cultural themes.
