Class Groups

The school caters for up to 41 boys who are taught in 7 classes and are grouped according to ability and learning need. By grouping in this way it means that the curriculum can be adapted and presented in the most effective way for our pupils. Our classes have a space theme and are called: Saturn, Pluto, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Titan and Neptune. To find out more about what we are learning take a look at our class pages.

Each class has at least a teacher and a TA and our maximum class size is 8. Some classes have more adults depending on the needs of the pupils. We have a behaviour team, who are also available to support both in and out of class as the need arises. We have a Speech and Language Therapist 5 days per week who assesses pupils and works with them on a 1:1 and works closely with the teaching staff to ensure the curriculum is delivered in the most appropriate way for all the pupils. We have a full time Therapy Assistant who helps implement the strategies within class as well as working with small groups on social skills. The therapy and Behaviour team offer a modified timetable for pupils who have additional barriers to their learning. In these sessions they take part in a variety of small group activities from Lego therapy and board games to cooking and maintenance. All classes have the opportunity to take part in Outdoor learning for a double session each week. During these session the pupils have made pizza and cooked it on the camp fire, bird boxes, decoupage, reindeer and much more.

The communication between home and school is excellent.
