The school caters for up to 54 boys who are taught in 8 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, Galaxy 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 pupil support team, who are also available to support both in and out of class as the need arises. We currently have an OT one day per week. We have a full time Therapy Assistant who helps implement the strategies within class as well as working with small groups on social skills. We also have an art therapist 3 days per week. The therapy and pupil support 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 one hour each week. During these session the pupils have made hot chocolate, bird boxes, decoupage, reindeer and much more.
