Key Stage 4

The Year 10/11 programme prepares pupils for the transition to a Post 16 placement either with us, at college, a training provider or employment in additional to consolidating and developing academic and basic life skills.

Pupils follow the National Curriculum and this is supported by distinct emphasis on independence and life skills teaching and experiences.

Careers Education and Guidance (CEG) is central to the programme. All pupils have their own pupil entitlement to CEG documents so that they can record whether the school provides the teaching and experiences it says it will. 14-16 year old pupils consequently experience a wider range of curricular, vocational and social opportunities.

Pupils have the opportunity to gain Entry Level and vocational qualifications depending on their level of ability. Pupils in their last year of schooling may be given the opportunity to experience sheltered work experience or for the majority of pupils who have greater independence, work experience without support.
