Extended Curriculum: External Courses and Accreditation

External courses and accreditation enables us to give our students the opportunity to learn in a range of different environments. This can help prepare them to move on from school by: giving them a feel for different settings, helping them achieve qualifications to access higher levels of learning and introducing them to areas that they may wish to pursue further. They also provide an enhanced range of experiences due to access to facilities that we don’t have within the school. It also reinforces prior learning by helping students apply their knowledge to different settings and situations. Alongside this the courses give them the chance to develop a better understanding of their local communities and what is available within them.
