Teaching & Learning

The over arching vision of our school is to see vulnerable young people transformed into Independent and functionally confident adults, able to sustain themselves in an ever changing world.

Our menu of qualifications and applied learning outcomes will enable us to offer an individual menu for each learner. Recognition for efforts will be emphasized by accredited outcomes in all aspects of curriculum delivery. Courses will benefit from over 90 Aim Award Units on offer, together with BTEC and other industry standard qualifications.

They cover the following applied areas:

  • Hospitality / catering
  • Hair /Beauty
  • Music / Digital Arts
  • Sport
  • Construction
  • Motor vehicle
  • Horticulture

We also value skills for personal independence and will be offering an extensive suite of Options to enable young people to become self-sustaining within the community.

These will include awards such as:

Accessing public transport, assertive living, building a career portfolio, developing own interpersonal skills, developing personal confidence and self awareness, developing personal hygiene skills for oral health, introduction to general skills for independent living, introduction to personal budgeting and money management, preparation for work, active citizenship within the community, understanding prejudice and discrimination, understanding rights and responsibilities of citizenship.

We believe it is vital that, alongside a challenging functional literacy, numeracy and ICT base, young people have the chance to achieve a range of awards and develop critical independence skills and to understand the impact of their decisions on themselves and also the wider community.

We also want to enable all students to reflect upon and respect the diverse cultural nature of modern British life.
