Curriculum Offer

We have a well-constructed curriculum, tailored to meet the needs of our learners and address social disadvantage on many levels.  Our curriculum offer is adapted to meet individual needs where appropriate and therefore offers a range of pathways, which we believe broaden rather than narrow the offer at different points during the five-year journey.  This is essential to overcome social disadvantage and remove the barriers our pupils face.  As a result, the number of pupils who are NEET has reduced below the national average of 2.8% to 2% (two pupils), and the number of pupils progressing to Further Education College and sixth form has increased from 83% in 2016 to 90% in 2018.  Although we are a small school, we continue to develop our offer, with resistant materials, food technology, textiles, art, graphics, photography and performing arts taught in Key Stage Three.  In Key Stage Four we offer a broad range of technical, vocational and academic subjects including Health and Social Care, ICT, construction and GCSE Computer Science.  We plan to extend to a three year Key Stage 3 in September 2020.
