Key stage 4

During Key Stage 4 all students follow Entry Level qualifications in ASDAN Personal Progress. In addition, some students also follow Entry Level qualifications in English, Maths and ICT where this is deemed appropriate.

In 2017-18 all 8 Year 11 students entered for Personal Progress achieved a qualification. Of these, four students gained an Award-sized qualification and four gained a Certificate-sized qualification, all of which represents good progress for each individual.

Sixth Form

In the sixth form all our students take qualifications in OCR Life and Living Skills, a nationally recognised accredited curriculum.

In addition our broad curriculum offers opportunities for certification through our link courses with local FE providers including Kingston Maurward and Weymouth College.
There is a strong work experience programme in place for all students, accessing placements with both local and national employers wherever possible. All students also participate in a variety of work-based and non-qualification activities and enterprises such as coffee mornings, a café based in the local community and various sales such as potted plants, hanging baskets and jams and chutneys.

Year 14 leavers in 2018:
All eight students entered for the OCR Life and Living Skills achieved an Entry Level qualification. Of these eight students three achieved an Award-sized qualification, three achieved a Certificate-sized qualification, and two achieved a full Diploma. In all cases we considered progress to be good or very good.

Two students left before the end of the year, one to an alternative provider and one to a bespoke social care package.
