YOUR EDUCATION

The school offers a full compensatory education programme for pupils in Key Stage 2 and 3, leading to GCSE examinations and/or functional literacy and numeracy courses where these may be more appropriate for a young person in Key Stage 4.

Vocational training opportunities play a major part in preparing each pupil for adult life. Some young people proceed into the school’s post-16 provision, supported by their local authorities, where they follow bespoke courses; this may include part or full-time attendance at college, supported by a learning mentor from the school.

OUR COMMUNITY

The school creates opportunities for pupils to contribute to the wider community and an enviable range of outdoor, sporting, and recreational ventures provide strong incentives to participate in and beyond the classroom. Our model of living and working encourages pupils to develop active, participating and contributing membership of their home communities and society in general.

DEVELOPING

RELATIONSHIPS

A high premium is placed on the growth of positive relationships between pupils and the staff team, such that, in times of challenge or crisis, appropriate staff support may enable pupils to address and overcome difficulty. We aim to help pupils manage the difficulties and obstacles they may encounter with a prevailing sense of respect and regard for their personal dignity and always in the knowledge that we are here to help.
