14 - 19
Hi there! Welcome to the 14-19 page.
If your child is coming into Andromeda, Capella Class (St Richard Reynolds) or Mira, Pegasus Class (Grey Court) then they must be preparing for adulthood and between the ages of 14-19 (the maybe a few exceptions to the rule!). Firstly, it is absolutely normal to feel apprehensive or nervous about your child transferring to our school and it is just as normal to feel happy and reassured school is happening in September again! Whichever emotion you are feeling, even if it is a mix of all four, we are here to support you.
We have grown from a one-class key phase up to four classes over the last four years. The class groups change based on the needs and ages of the pupils. Our role is to support our young adults in preparation for adulthood and their next step in life. We do this by creating opportunities inside and outside the classroom e.g. work experience, independence skills and regular community visits.
From September 2020, we started following our own personalised Strathmore Curriculum Framework, written specifically for our cohort of learners. You will be able to see your child’s learning and progress on an app called ‘Earwig’ which you will have access to from home. We look forward to meeting all of the new pupils and parents.
