Our curriculum challenges and extends our learners, enabling them to develop both their personal and their academic skills and knowledge. Our investment in excellent resources and staff development has supported our continuing development and ensured that our curriculum is of the highest quality.
In consequence of the tireless efforts of our committed staff and governing body we have been rewarded with consistently good achievement among our learners. Our learners often achieve successes that neither they nor their families would ever have thought possible. Their outcomes show huge progress from their starting points and we are proud of their achievements which, by the end of Key Stage 4, range from success at entry and foundation level through to 5 or more GCSEs at ‘A* – C’. All of our learners achieve public examinations as well as developing personal and practical skills to prepare them for independence, adult life and the world of work.
In order to achieve this we:
The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) regulates qualifications, examinations and assessments in England and vocational qualifications in Northern Ireland. Ofqual is a non-ministerial department.
