Students in KS4 (14-16 years old) and KS5 (16-19 years old) attend the College, where we aim to prepare them for moving on to adult life, whether this be to the workplace, to further education or to supportive adult provision. Class groups are named after their key stage and teacher's initials. (e.g. 4CM and 5AS).
Students at the College study a wide range of subjects either at the College or with partner schools and Colleges offering vocational courses. The curriculum is personalised to the needs of the pupils as far as possible. Some classes concentrate on developing independence in daily living activities, whilst others follow certificated courses leading to GCSEs, Entry Level Certificates or NVQs.
The curriculum for each child and class is adapted to their needs and developmental stage as far as possible. Wherever we can, a pupil’s programme is personalised to include the additional learning and skills practice that they need.
