We have developed a unique, extensive, and ambitious curriculum to support our students in having a bright future. As our students change, so does our curriculum, but there are three core values that underpin it at all times:
Ambition – our curriculum is ambitious in both breadth (number of timetabled subjects) and depth (range of academic level provided). We offer all the subjects one would expect in a large mainstream school, as well as subjects that are specifically delivered to support the needs of our students (e.g. SaLT, Wellbeing, Future Skills, Community Skills, Life Skills). The vast majority of subjects are taught at a level spanning KS1 – KS4. This ensures the curriculum is suitably pitched and challenging for all ability levels within the school. More details on the qualifications offered are below.
Versatility – we believe in building a curriculum around our students, not the other way round. We are constantly exploring opportunities to expand our curriculum offer to suit the individual needs of students. This includes a partnership we have established with neighbouring provisions allowing students to access – with staff support – courses not yet available in Lighthouse School. Each student will have something unique in their timetable.
