Harford Manor School

 

Our Post-16 Department

There are two classes in the Post-16 age phase

Key Stage 5 Class

In FE students are prepared for life beyond school. Some students are involved with highly successful work experience placements which recently have included links with Sainsbury's and the Norwich Castle Museum; whilst we also offer internal work placements within school, such as time working in the school office or with the maintenance team. Students are equipped with wide-ranging life skills from cooking to learning how to voice opinions and develop appropriate self-expression, building confidence in social situations in and outside of school. Students take their roles as active citizens seriously, attending first aid and life saving courses. FE are extremely sporty and take part in football, basketball and athletics tournaments. All of our students also attend sessions at local colleges, as they explore the choices and options available to them after leaving school. 

Autistic Resource Base (ARB) for Key Stage 5              

Cullum Lodge offers a tailored curriculum that gives students many different learning opportunities on site and in the community. Our students work on the concrete application of the curriculum, with a large focus on life skills, independence and communicating effectively within the wider environment. We use local community facilities such as swimming pools, the gym and shopping centres on a regular basis, as well as accessing work experience placements at local charity organizations. We aim to equip our students with the ability to begin to solve problems for themselves, prepare them for early adulthood and to encourage them to each make an active contribution as citizens in their local community.
