Our learners come from a wide range of mainstream schools and other settings. Many arrive following particular specifications in their chosen subjects and we strive to maintain the continuity that they need. Since learners come from a wide range of different areas and settings, we deliver a fluid mix of different examination boards and specifications. It is this that makes our job exciting as we want to ensure that every student is supported and encouraged towards achieving their full potential. We liaise closely with the students’ home schools to ensure that the transition into hospital education and back out again as smooth as possible.
We aim to deliver an exciting and inspirational timetable of lessons to support our young people’s learning. During Key Stage 4, most of our learners work towards national qualifications, mainly GCSE’s. The compulsory national curriculum subjects are the ‘core’ and ‘foundation’ subjects.
