We plan every student’s learning and development individually.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum at every stage, and adapt this curriculum to reflect the changing needs of individual students as they progress through the school, and according to their individual talents and interests.

We use a wide range of recognised autistic spectrum condition approaches to support learning. There is a strong emphasis on a multi-disciplinary approach.

Students can study towards attainment at GCSE and A-Level, as well as other accredited qualifications. They can also gain nationally recognised vocational qualifications.

We are very proud of the SAT’s results that our students achieved in 2018. The students maintained a positive attitutude throughout the week when taking their SAT’s and their hard work and determination really paid off. The students were given a scaled score for their final results and these scores were comparable to National year six expected equivalents. All students achieved well and should be really pleased with what they have achieved. A huge well done to all of the year six students. – SLT

Learning beyond the classroom

The curriculum is enriched with real-life opportunities to learn with trips, visits and outings. We plan these with the students’ age and ability in mind to be positive and safe experiences.

Learning is extended beyond our curriculum through weekly ‘Special Interests’ sessions. Led by the interests of our students, a range of activities have been offered including horse riding, forest school, independent travel and even going to the local gym.

When we came to look around one of the students told us “this is the best school ever” and sure enough they were right. – Parent visiting Gretton

Vocational curriculum & work-based learning

We have a strong emphasis on developing independent living skills and providing vocational opportunities for students aged 14 to 19. The vocational curriculum is tailored to individual needs and ambitions, and includes access to qualifications.

Post-16 students are supported to identify and access courses at local colleges, as well as work-related learning placements within local organisations.

Participating in community life is an important part of our independence training programmes, which are designed to support our student’s future transition to less supported environments, including semi-independent and independent living.

Personal Development

Tailored independence programmes are designed to enable older students to take responsibility for their own personal development. These programmes focus on promoting choice and decision-making, as well as life-skills development such as independent study, travel and cooking.
