Secondary Curriculum

Within the Secondary Department we continue to provide a nurturing environment with an increased emphasis on developing independence skills. When our students join the Secondary Department they are guided towards more age appropriate interests and making informed choices. Key Stage 3 and 4 students are class grouped by age and follow the National Curriculum through practical and meaningful activities. Students are provided with learning experiences which promote core skills and knowledge at an appropriate and relevant level. For some students a greater element of sensory input is required whilst maintaining sufficient breadth and balance of experience. Our priority is always the individual.

Key Stage 4 students can gain accreditation and have the opportunity for work experience in years 10 and 11. This is done through the OCR exam board and is called 'Life and Living Skills'. Click here to view details.

Students also gain confidence and valuable social, communication, literacy and numeracy skills from working in the school charity shop, Close Links, which is based in the local community. Some pupils also work towards retail-based accreditation. Click below to see this terms topic.
