Spring Hill School

We have a flexible approach to learning, personalising the curriculum and teaching groups to meet students' individual learning needs and abilities.


At Cambian Spring Hill School we aim to provide consistent, diverse, enjoyable and structured learning opportunities through a broad curriculum.


We understand that not all young people with Autism Spectrum Disorder will learn new skills at the same pace so our curriculum caters for learners with a wide range of needs.


We believe that learners are entitled to a curriculum that is balanced and relevant.


Personalised approach


The curriculum followed is based on the new National Curriculum, but the delivery of each subject is adapted to meet the very particular needs of our learners.


The curriculum model emphasises the importance of key core subjects, whilst offering the full National Curriculum. Our curriculum offers a range of options that can lead to external accreditation and qualifications.


There is also an opportunity for students to have work experience and these may be on or off-site. Where possible, the school places students with local employers and works with partner organisations to ensure the suitability of placements, that include horticulture, construction, retail, admin, IT, motor vehicle and animal care.


Class groups are small, promoting participation and engagement in learning and includes individual programmes of study, if appropriate. Alongside the formal curriculum, behaviour management strategies and the development of social skills are also an integral part of lessons on the timetable.


Qualifications we offer include:


✓ Pearson BTECs

✓ Functional Skills Level 1 & 2

✓ Ascentis Entry Level Awards (Stepping Stones)

✓ LIBF LiFE Certificates

✓ AQA Unit Award Scheme

✓ Various Short Courses
