Life Skills

Securing Independence

At key stage four some of our pupils will follow an alternative curriculum.

The programme is aimed at young people who may not find all areas of the curriculum accessible and is an informal approach to learning. We provide our young people with the space and attention they need to develop confidence, as well as helping them form a sense of ownership over their work and own development and progression.

The life skills curriculum includes topics such as:

  • Personal and Interpersonal skills
  • Active Citizenship
  • Entrepreneurship and Enterprise
  • Preparation for work
  • Enrichment Projects e.g. Hair and Beauty, Gardening, cookery, sport etc

Alternative Qualification

The students can also gain an accreditation for the Prince's Trust XL Awards.
