Curriculum at the CE Academy
Each young person attending the CE Academy has an individual timetable designed to meet their needs.* This includes an appropriate balance of academic and practical/vocational subjects.
All Key Stage 3 young people will follow the Ruth Miskin Literacy programme and all are involved in a social skills/team building programme designed to improve their interpersonal skills.
At Key Stage 4 young people are able to take GCSEs in up to eight subjects. The CE Academy will also support young people wanting to complete GCSE studies begun in mainstream school.
There is an opportunity to achieve qualifications in a range of vocational areas for example Catering, Hair & Beauty & Mechanics.
* Please note CE Academy does not routinely take young people with EHC plans.
Young People in Key Stage 3 will need to wear a uniform at school. Whereas, pupils in Key Stage 4 are not required to wear a uniform, however we still have rules on what can and can’t be worn in the academy. For more information please check our Dress Code page.
