Upper School

14-16 Curriculum

The 14-16 Curriculum is designed to meet the individual needs of all pupils.

The curriculum is person centred in that all pupils have a bespoke timetable and are offered considerable choice during the planning stage. All pupils going into 14-16 attend an options evening based on the core subjects and 6 option blocks based around non-core subjects. Option evening provides pupils, parents and carers with a detailed explanation of individual subjects and qualifications, and allows time for discussions with lead teachers.  Where beneficial for the needs of individual pupils, there is an option to select the Sandon Pathways option, this supports with transitioning and development.

The 14-16 curriculum works alongside our work experience programme, which is designed to support and prepare our pupils for post 16.
