Course Description
The course aims to develop students' skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening, with a particular focus on the English language. The curriculum covers a wide range of topics and literary texts, exposing students to various forms of written and spoken English, including fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and drama.

Every student will undertake an initial assessment to ensure they are enrolled onto the right level course. We employ adaptive learning techniques that focus on gaps in attainment and incorporate individual learning styles. This enables us to tailor the students' learning pathway and target areas for improvement. Our course provides foundations for learning and life, which includes academic (Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4, ready for GCSE Certificate) and personal development opportunities (Award or Certificate in Skills for Employment, Training and Personal Development).

We provide a blended learning approach that combines the best elements of 1:1 or small cohort classroom lessons combined with break out sessions for self-paced e-learning that encourages digital literacy skills and student engagement.
