Our students have full access to the National Curriculum, through our multi-sensory approach.
Specialist support from speech and language and occupational therapists helps students achieve the best possible academic results and provides a foundation for the future.
Our most recent Ofsted report says it all…
“Teaching in most subject areas is consistently good. In some subject’s areas, teaching is consistently outstanding. The school offers an extremely broad curriculum, including vocational options and a full range of academic subjects that prepares students well for higher education. Students go on to achieve well from their individual starting points, achieving GCSE's in a wide range of subjects. Almost exclusively, when students leave the school age 16, they continue in further education. Some students go on to study successfully at university.”

Duke of Edinburgh Awards
A DofE programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from. You just need to be aged between 14 and 24 and realise there’s more to life than sitting on a sofa watching life pass you by.
You can do programmes at three levels, which when completed, lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh's Award. During the two years the students will have the opportunity to complete their Bronze and Silver Award. Find out more about about each level here.
You achieve an Award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections:
- Volunteering: undertaking service to individuals or the community
- Physical: improving in an area of sport, dance or fitness activities
- Skills: developing practical and social skills and personal interests
- Expedition: planning, training for and completion of an adventurous journey
You'll find yourself helping people or the community, getting fitter, developing skills, going on an expedition. Your programme can be full of activities and projects that get you buzzing, and along the way you’ll pick up experiences, friends and talents that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
