The vocational programme

DSC03096 filter#.jpg

The vocational pathway is for students who want inspiring industry standard facilities in which to learn practical skills at BTEC level. We make the most of our fully working industry standard Salon, working kitchens, a fully equipped construction room, motorbike mechanics garage and a fully equipped gym.

Students in KS4 study one BTEC in year 10 and then another in year 11. This is all alongside Functional Skills in English, Maths and ICT.

In KS3 students study National Curriculum age appropriate English, Maths and Science. There are also fun and engaging projects that teach a range of awesome skills. Projects range from renovating a boat to preparing and running a pop-up cafe.

This is a bespoke curriculum with vocational outcomes. It suits students who have needs that prevent them from flourishing within a mainstream setting, but who may not be ready to study for 5 GCSE outcomes. This programme exists to set students up to succeed.

Students in all year groups engage with a bespoke PSHE programme to address the many social and personal challenges that come with having additional needs.
