Whole School Long-term Plans

In our Lower School, learners access a full range of National Curriculum subjects. These are delivered by a class teacher using a primary school model to offer the highest level of consistency. These are delivered as discreet subjects and through a topic that changes each half-term. This helps learners to access more meaningful learning experiences in which they are able to make links between their learning in different subject areas helping them to contextualise and consolidate learning. Learners in the Lower School also benefit from some of their lessons being taught by experienced specialist staff.

The range of subjects delivered in Lower School are: Literacy, Maths, Science, Humanities (World Studies), Computing, Food Technology, Physical Education, Adventure, Community and Enterprise Education (ACE), Music, PSHE and Personalised Learning. 

In our Upper School, most learners will remain in their form class and are taught by specialist staff in a range of National Curriculum subjects.

Learners study a core of subjects that allow them to continue to access a broad and balanced education that prepares them for life as well as accessing a range of qualifications. 

The range of subjects on offer in the Upper School are: English, Maths, Science, Adventure, Community and Enterprise. Personalised Learning, Music Technology, Media and Computing, Art and Design, Food and Cookery Skills, Physical Education, PSHE, ASDAN courses and Performing Arts, Please see below further information on these subjects.
