We have four classes on the main school site:

Odyssey and Quest (learners in the CLICK pathway)

Adventure (thematic life skills pathway)

Safari (sensory life skills pathway)

Students in the 6th Form are being prepared for the next stage of their adult life, in their final years at school.

Each student follows their own personalised plan, with the aim that they will leave school at 19 to commence at destination shaped to their needs.

All students and their families are involved in this planning, through meetings and the annual review process.

Students in the CLICK pathway study English and Maths, and are supported to achieve accredited outcomes at various levels through NOCN. They also have opportunities to gain vital life skills, in the cooking room, forest school and through the use of their own laptops.

Students also learn about relationship and sex education, religion and ethics and employability thorough lessons that a differentiated and structured.

We are proud of our links with Confidance, a professional dance company who are in residence with us every week. Some of our students undertake work experience with them, and some ex-pupils are professional dancers within Confi-Co, their inclusive dance company. Students are taught to play guitar or have music therapy with our specialist music therapist. We employ a psychotherapist who provides valuable counselling support.
