As a school we are committed to providing an individualised, broad, balanced and accessible Programme of Learning that is able to meet the needs of all our pupils.
To ensure that this is possible, we have aquired the Cornerstones Curriculum which is based on the national curriculum and provides over 80 different projects the pupils can learn from. We also follow Functional Skills, in core subjects and these two together achieve acreditation through ASDAN. Children can access GCSE's in certain subjetcs if they are acedemically able.
Each pupil has a individual learning pathway that includes an element of choice that can be tailored to their own needs and interests thus ensuring that they can achieve the most out from their education.
In addition, we also offer:
- Theraputic input from Speech and Language Therapist

We actively promote pupil leadership opportunities, enabling your child to develop valuable communication, organisation and debating skills.
We believe that providing these key roles of responsibility are paramount to their development and learning experience.
Our successful Pupil Parliament is a well-respected body within the school and consists of representatives from Lower School, Upper School and Post 16. Pupiles involved in our Pupil Parliament meet regularly to discuss topics, issues and initiatives that affect them and their learning environment. As part of their responsibilities, the team organise their own meetings, decide on an agenda, share new ideas and vote on a number of school related issues. Actions from each meeting are shared with the rest of the school through the school channel, HHTV.
Members of the school parliament have recently taken decisions on the referendum. In return for their contribution throughout the year, and to support them with developing skills for their role, members of Pupil Parliament are invited to visit the Houses of Parliament each year to gain an insight into politics and the Parliament.
