Key Stage 5
In Key Stage 5 pupils have the opportunity to gain improved qualifications in English and Maths as a core offer. Where pupils achieved a GCSE grade 3 in English or Maths then they will follow a GCSE resit pathway, however where they haven’t they will follow other appropriate courses, including ‘steppingstone’ qualifications to further develop the key skills required in these subjects.
The focus is on developing skills for life, independence and readiness for leaving school. As part of this pupils follow targeted AIMs units that build and enhance these skills along with opportunities to engage in work experience placements and linked courses with local college providers. Pupils also have the opportunity to develop their independent travel training (TITAN) experiences and learn Home Cooking Skills through Jamie Oliver’s accredited qualification.
An overview of the curriculum that pupils follow is outlined below:
