We have a well-constructed curriculum, tailored to meet the needs of our learners and address social disadvantage on many levels. Our curriculum offer is adapted to meet individual needs where appropriate and therefore offers a range of pathways, which we believe broaden rather than narrow the offer at different points during the five-year journey. This is essential to overcome social disadvantage and remove the barriers our pupils face. As a result, the number of pupils who are NEET has reduced below the national average to 2.7% and the number of pupils progressing to Further Education College and sixth form has increased to 90% in 2018. Although we are a small school, we continue to develop our offer, with DT, food technology, music, art and drama taught in Key Stage Three. In Key Stage Four we offer a broad range of technical and vocational subjects including Health and Social Care, IMedia, Engineering and Sport alongside academic GCSEs in subjects such as History, Geography and French.
We plan to extend to a three year Key Stage 3 in September 2020.
