Key Stage 2

We have a primary approach to our KS2 leaning. There are specialist teachers who work with the students, focusing on different subject areas. The emphasis is on engagement and creativity.

Key Stage 3

Learning takes account of the particular barriers and vulnerabilities of each learner. The balance between cross-curricular and subject-specific themes will depend on the engagement and interest of the learner. Where appropriate, early entry into accredited programmes such as Entry Level will be arranged in order to re-engage and motivate.

Key Stage 4

Students have the opportunity to follow a more flexible curriculum. Academic qualifications are offered via Entry Level and GCSE examinations in a range of subjects. Vocational qualifications are also made available.

Key Stage 5

Students have the opportunity to build on their GCSE results and/or take part in BTEC qualifications to help them further their future.
