Our Learning Offer

We aim to provide an outstanding, inspirational education that will empower students to reach their full potential and give them a vision for life and their future.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum at Key Stage 3. The KS3 curriculum has many of the characteristics followed in a mainstream environment in order to aid reintegration. However, it also includes unique opportunities for self-development and understanding. This includes a bespoke personal development programme.

We teach in small groups of 8 students with a staff-student ratio of 1:4. We offer a personalised Literacy and Numeracy programmes for all students to improve achievement and remove barriers to learning. There is also a heavy investment and promotion of reading packages, support and strategies.

We have an individual mentoring programme to support the progress of every student.

If parents have any questions or concerns about our curriculum, or simply would like elements of it explaining, please don’t hesitate to contact Mrs Thompson or Miss Allen at Ashwell Academy.
