Curriculum

Speech, language and communication work form the centre of the work of the staff at the school. We have a qualified speech and language therapist on the staff and he works closely with the teachers. All students take part in Social Use of Language (SULP) group sessions. One to one therapy sessions are provided for students who are assessed as needing them.

The school also work in partnership with external providers such as further education colleges, other schools and vocational providers to extend the opportunities offered to all of our students

Key Stage 3 students are offered a broad and balanced curriculum in line with mainstream schools. In addition to this our students go on a wide variety of external visits that are designed to enrich the curriculum.

Key Stage 4 students follow a programme that incorporates English, Maths, ICT, Science, vocational studies and Art and Design. Students can study from entry level up to GCSE level depending on their ability. The school is a registered examination centre so students can take their exams at the school.

Our Post 16 students are offered the opportunity to study courses at our partner providers and also take functional skills and lifeskills courses at the school.
