Key stage 3 

Following their induction, key stage 3 (KS3) learners are expected to follow the full timetable. As well as English, maths and science, KS3 learners study: bushcraft (which includes first aid), reading, languages (Spanish and French), PSHE (which includes relationship and sex education), film studies, music, food technology, art, PE, life skills and topic (which includes emotional well-being and religious education). 

 

The aim of the Academy is to fully reintegrate KS3 learners into mainstream or special school within a specific period of time, as agreed on referral and dependent on individual needs of the learner.

 

Key stage 4

Following their induction, key stage 4 (KS4) learners are expected to follow the full timetable, unless they are completing extended work experience.

 

The aim of the Academy is to fully reintegrate all year 10 learners into mainstream or special school within a specific period of time, as agreed on referral and dependent on individual needs of the learner. If this is not possible, and the learner progresses to year 11, each individual is prepared for further education, employment or training by aiming to complete a minimum of 5 GCSEs or equivalent (to include English, maths and science) and being given careers guidance.

 

KS4 learners who have been permanently excluded or who have enrolled with the Academy as a supportive measure or alternative to permanent exclusion study a wide range of subjects alongside English, maths and science. These include: citizenship, travel and tourism (Y10), business studies (Y11), PSHE (which includes relationship and sex education and first aid), art or health and fitness, life skills, topic (which includes emotional well-being and religious education), food, PE and Arts Award.

 

Year 11 learners may be referred to the Academy for a short period of study. They can continue with their core and option subjects, with support from the referring school, if necessary. The Academy provides study support to ensure learners do not fall behind in subjects that are not timetabled.
