Young people have the opportunity to develop to their full potential in preparation of their future life where there is a passion for learning and mutual respect for all.
The school's curriculum is broad and balanced, and includes, where appropriate, all of the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. There is a particular emphasis on core subjects and on personal skills, as to address significant gaps in previous learning.
These subjects include: Mathematics, English, Science, ICT, PSHE, Food Technology, Art and Design, Humanities, RSE, Health and Social Care, Hair and Beauty, Mechanics, Construction, and Physical Education.
We actively promote opportunities to broaden student's experiences through a wide variety of educational visits and we work with other agencies to deliver projects both on and off the school site. We encourage students to make a positive contribution to society in many ways, including involving them in community and charity events throughout the school year.
We also offer vocational placements to all students and they will have the opportunity to receive staff support as required, including college. In some cases, there may be the opportunity for students to begin working independently at placements. However, this must be risk assessed and pre-planned with the final decision made by the school.
