The 14-19 curriculum

We offer a comprehensive 14-19 curriculum for pupils in Key Stage 4 and above, including options both at Coxlease School itself and at local colleges. Pupils can choose from a variety of different pathways, including:

  • GCSEs
  • BTECs
  • NVQs
  • ASDAN awards
  • Duke of Edinburgh
  • Other external examinations

Our new Post-16 learning facility, The Hub, also offers a range of academic and construction-based training opportunities for those who have previously left school with no qualifications and no incentive to continue their learning.

The Skills Centre, Coxlease School’s new vocational learning provision, is designed to support young people aged 16 years and over to meet their ambitions and provide them with the necessary support on their journey to independence.

“Excellent progress is evident due to a highly effective curriculum, which enables pupils to make very rapid advances in their learning. Pupils are highly stimulated by the engaging and relevant topics they study and the enthusiastic manner in which teachers present them.”
