Our programme of Academic and Vocational classes is fully integrated to ensure a fully rounded curriculum. The sheer variety in the days, the range of visits and the practical lessons are well suited to practical and kinaesthetic learners. Pupils of wide ranging abilities thrive here, and with Dyslexia Support where required, academic class sizes of 10-15, and Extension Projects for our very capable academics, pupils recognise the importance of striving for excellence and work hard to achieve their goals.
Academic Subjects include:
- English Literature
- English Language
- Humanities (Geography to GCSE up to 2018 examination)
- Science (with Biology to GCSE)
- GCSE Drama
- GCSE Dance
Please see Sixth Form pages for Sixth Form Curriculum.
Students of our full time school may not take external academic lessons in GCSE examination subjects without the written permission of the School Directors.
The School will take an individual approach to children with specific needs, as demonstrated through their Educational Statement, prior school report and/or observations of Redroofs School. Through the tutor system, the child will have a point of contact, together with their parents and any required specialist support (additional charges may apply for external peripatetic support)
In cases where children may require EAL provision this will be timetabled with appropriate staff or specialist to ensure best understanding of classroom and studio delivery, alongside pastoral support as required, both formally and informally.
