Faculties of Learning

Our curriculum promotes the five school values: proud, happy, safe, enthusiastic and welcoming.

All learning links to the five key pillars of adulthood: to be responsible, healthy, sociable, purposeful and independent.

Our five faculties of learning in Secondary deliver the curriculum through project-based learning. Projects are linked by a universal theme, which runs across the whole curriculum and lasts two terms. Projects are collaborative to promote communication and interaction skills; the learning is also student-led to help students have a sense of ownership and to take pride in their work.

The secondary curriculum has a clear pathway for our learners to make progress towards adulthood, where all students will leave with appropriate accreditation (through OCR, WJEC and/or The Princes Trust). Progression pathways are carefully mapped for all students, allowing them to continue to make progress in the Sixth Form curriculum.

Secondary teaching assistants all have one of two distinct roles:

Faculty TAs work within one of the five faculties, supporting subject specialist teachers to deliver lessons in that faculty. They have an excellent knowledge of their subject, ensuring a high standard of teaching takes place for all students.

Community TAs support a specific student or group of students throughout the week. They have a key role in the pastoral care of the students they work with.

Celebrating Achievement

At the end of every project, parents and carers will be invited in to attend our Showcase Assembly, where students present their project work in various forms.
