Our year 10 and 11 pupils all work towards accreditations that reflect their strengths and interests and promote their independence. They have regular meetings with key adults to support them in reviewing their work and identifying next steps. Our independent careers adviser ensures pupils and families are well informed about possible college and careers opportunities. We are able to offer travel training to many pupils to enable them to travel between school and home independently. Maths, English, ICT, PSHE, PE, RE, Art and Science are part of everyone’s timetable with learning opportunities tailored to individual needs. In addition, pupils choose from a range of enrichment opportunities such as outdoor learning and music. Independence, community participation and confidence are valuable aspects of learning taught in life skills lessons and through the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. In key stage 4 pupils have an opportunity to attend taster courses at local colleges.
