Curriculum

The curriculum in the sixth form is a ‘real life’ curriculum and provides students with the qualifications, knowledge, skills and tools to enable them to live happy and successful adult lives as independently as possible. 

There are 3 aspects to the sixth form curriculum:

  • Functional Skills in English, Maths and ICT lead onto EdExcel qualifications in these subjects at Entry Level 1, 2 and 3. Students able to access these Functional Skills work in small group and 121 settings for several sessions each week.
     
  • Personal Progress Curriculum leads onto EdExcel qualifications. Students can work towards an Award, Certificate and Diploma in Entry Level 1 Personal Progress during their time in the sixth form. Courses of study include Mathematical Skills, Communication Skills, ICT Skills, Independent Living and Supported Employment.
       
  • Enrichment Curriculum - enables students to gain rich experiences of a wide range of subjects, topics and events going on in the world. The enrichment curriculum includes events such as the American Presidency, Enterprise opportunites for the Summer and Christmas school fayre and social events such as theatre visits.
