Aspirations for the Future

We encourage pupils to have aspirations for the future in many ways:

  • We have high expectations for all pupils and set challenging targets.
  • Personalised curriculums motivate pupils to achieve.
  • 1:2:1 intervention is put in place where pupils are finding learning difficult or need additional challenge.
  • Quality first teaching means that pupils achieve to the best of their abilities.
  • Pupils attend college from year 9 which helps them to understand what will motivate them in the future and select a career path.
  • In year 10 and 11 pupils take part in college courses which they have chosen because it is an area where they would like more experience or they enjoy.
  • Changing Education work with pupils so that they develop work skills and take part in worthwhile work experience.
  • Qualifications such as the Duke of Edinburgh encourage pupils to develop their ability to persevere when faced with challenges.
