In addition there are also programmes of Nurture, booster sessions in maths and literacy and enrichment activities throughout each week. These programmes will vary between groups and individuals in order to meet specific identified needs of individual students.

Nurture Group

We have a small group of students that benefit from a curriculum on the 6 Principles of Nurture. This is because for whatever reason their education has been hindered and this environment gives them the best opportunities to meet their needs. They cover all aspects of the curriculum but they do so via topic/project based studies within a small dedicated space with the same staff, similar to a primary model. 

 

Key Stage 4

In KS 4 we have a core offer of:

  • Maths
  • English
