Upper site Curriculum

Upper site Curriculum

The Upper Site aims to provide a personalised curriculum combining core subjects with more specialist choices where the learner's individual needs are paramount.

The variety of courses on offer considers key issues such as choice, academic levels, attendance, career aspirations and special educational needs. The key aim is to raise learners' expectations and to, therefore, raise college achievement as a whole.

The curriculum continues to grow and develop; we want to offer courses relevant to the changing economic needs and in line with new educational initiatives. We want our learners to gain both skills and qualifications to equip them for future life and employment opportunities.

The table below displays how many lessons are allocated to each subject per term.
