Arc School Old Arley follows the National Curriculum as well as maintaining a rich, broad and balanced offer which promotes intellectual, personal and social development, alongside spiritual and physical growth.
Learning is delivered using a creative approach and by forging partnerships with external providers of learning and education. This supports the school to deliver all the main subjects of the curriculum in different formats in order to offer a wide choice of achievable goals and qualifications to all pupils. This includes GCSEs, BTECs, entry levels in maths, English, science, humanities, food technology, art and many others. Education and support is provided in very small class sizes and there are both on and offsite learning as the school is currently working towards the “Learning Outside the Classroom Award” and pupils who opt to are, supported to complete the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
Pupils at the school also learn about the work place environments and how to interact appropriately in it. They do this by engaging in enterprise projects across all key stages and by taking part in work placements at Key Stage 4. The school works in partnership with “Rightstep” in Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire, The Careers Guidance Company and successfully guides pupils through to further education, training and employment opportunities.
