Learning for Life

The Avalon Sixth Form Curriculum is an extension of our whole school curriculum, click here for information about the Avalon curriculum.

Key Principles 

Pupils are offered a personalised curriculum that promotes:

• Independence
• Self-awareness
• Healthy living
• Confidence and self esteem
• Literacy and Numeracy through real life experiences

Through:
• Community participation and groups
• Work experience
• Accredited learning
• Sensory experiences
• College links with Strode college and other local colleges


Students’ timetables are personalised based on need, transition and students’ interest, with some students doing additional work experience and college slots; these opportunities increase in year 14 as part of transition. Their personalised timetable evolves in response to emerging areas of interest and future placement after school.

The Sixth Form offer include:

-College links for groups of pupils. These college courses have been tailored to offer a variety of different further education experiences.

-Short blocks or weekly work experience, with opportunities including: café, grounds maintenance at a local care home, in school tuck shop, a local bakery and other local businesses.

-Work related learning at Hazelhurst farm.

-Horticulture, hospitality and functional literacy and numeracy embedded in real life contexts.
