Our students are taught the core subjects – English, Maths and Science.
They are also able to express their creative and practical talents through the following subjects:
- Art and Design
- Design Technology
- Home Economics
- Media Studies
Our curriculum is organised so that students can excel in their stronger subjects and be supported in the ones they find difficult.
Students are regularly monitored and assessed, both formally and informally, to ensure that they are able to realise their potential in a structured and caring environment.
This enables students to see themselves as achievers and experience success at all kinds of levels both academically and pastorally.
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.
