  • English (GCSE and/or Functional Skills)
  • Maths (GCSE and/or Functional Skills)

  • Sports (BTEC Level 1)
  • Construction (BTEC Level 1)
  • Beauty (BTEC Level 1)

Our Key Stage 4 programme is suited for learners with complex needs and takes a holistic approach to learner progression; focusing equally on social, educational and behavioural development. Every learner is assigned a progression coach who will support them throughout their time here.

Transition

During the summer term we run a transition programme open to all new students from year 9 and year 10. It provides an opportunity to settle in, experience the different qualifications on offer and attend fun and enriching trips. Please get in touch if you would like to find out more.

Programme details

Learners are placed into a Core group based on their prior learning and baseline assessments. As well as following the subjects in their core group, they also pick a vocational qualification to follow. The number of lessons is also shown.
