Southway Curriculum Package

Our students follow a statutory 25 hours per week timetable, which can be extended due to our 2:25pm finish.

Following our assessment points for KS4 students, where identified, they could be asked to attend twilight sessions to focus on areas requiring improvement in one to one sessions or small groups.

Furthermore, the students are able, and are encouraged, to attend some of the extra-curricular programs that are available between the end of the school day and the close of the centre at 9:00pm. These range from music and art workshops to a variety of sporting activities.

Intervention Department

In our KS3 Intervention Department, we deliver a holistic curriculum that focuses on re-enthusing students to recognise that learning is fun.

Whilst there is still a key focus on ensuring that students are literate, numerate, able to communicate and are ready to learn, through our ‘Enrichment Curriculum’, they are able to experience a range of activities to develop and stimulate their learning, building their confidence and independence.

Enrichment activities include – swimming, ice skating, orienteering, skiing and snowboarding, mountain biking, and horticulture.

We also work closely with the Yorkshire Army Cadet Force, who provide access for students to attend an outreach adventure weekend, and with local businesses who provide an insight into the world of work.
