Students will have a variety of GCSE options to choose from and an entry level pathway will also be available. Learning for Life, Science, English and Maths are studied alongside option subjects and an Entry Level Humanities Course.

We aim to provide support and challenge for all of our pupils and promote respect and acceptance.

Pupils are always treated as individuals; therefore some may have adjusted timetables or reduced examination subjects.

The PLC consists of two classrooms which provide a purposeful learning environment incorporating a quiet library area. Teaching is multisensory in order to promote engagement and progress by accessing a variety of learning styles.
