The curriculum is designed to meet the individual needs of each pupil in order that they have the opportunity to meet their full potential, in an environment which is both therapeutic and supportive.
Teaching is done in small groups of no more than 6 pupils at any one time, creating calm low anxiety learning environments. Teaching staff deliver a personalised curriculum for every child, each young person is allocated a keyworker who looks after their personal well-being. This means that any necessary adaptations can be made to the curriculum in order to meet the changing needs of the young person including offsite learning opportunities.
Pupils follow the national curriculum and take examinations at GCSE and Entry Level as well as ASDAN, BTEC and Adult Basic Skills Qualifications. Part time further education college placements and work experience are offered at Key Stage 4 in order to prepare the young people for adult life. The majority of young people then move onto college placements when leaving the school.
