Phase 4

Year 9 and Year 10 

Students in Y9 and Y10 are taught in vertical groups. Students are grouped based upon their social, emotional and academic needs.

Phase 4 classes have a lead tutor who provides pastoral support for the class and delivers PSHE and core skills lessons. Phase 4 classes follow a ‘secondary’ curriculum, accessing different lessons taught by specialist teachers.

English and Maths is taught in ability groups, led by an English and Maths specialist and all students begin accredited courses.

Science, PE, Food Technology and Forest Schools are all delivered by subject specialists. Preparation for Adulthood is a full morning for all phase 4 classes. This allows greater opportunities to support transition to post 16 providers or travel further to promote independence in the community.

Enrichment opportunities are provided weekly, allowing students choice in exploring new curriculum areas.
