KS4PP


The KS4PP team consisting of Paul, Hayley and Jacquie welcomed the seven students back into school at the start of September.

The seven students have made a fantastic transition from KS3 to KS4 and this transition is a credit to the students after a long break from normal schooling.

The students are focussing on their individualised and diverse accreditation pathways and with the right support and a focus on our SHAPE curriculum, skills, attitudes, and the skills required for the path ahead.

Some of the vocational options chosen by our class Car and Bike Maintenance, giving students the skills required to repair bikes and learn how cars work and choose a career in this area.

Some of the other options include History, Horticulture, Earth Life, Sport, Carpentry, Art and Hair & Beauty. This shows the wide diversity of interests in the Pastoral Group and leads to some interesting discussions in the group.

Overall, it has been a very positive start to KS4PP for these seven students and the staff involved, let us hope this carries on throughout year 10 and beyond.
