KS4 Leader: Miss L Dorrian

The curriculum for Key Stage 4 pupils becomes more individualistic as pupils begin to study courses with an emphasis on learning useful skills and gaining awards and qualifications alongside developing attitude, personal and social skills important in learning and at work.

We feel we provide a wealth of opportunity including skills for life and work, vocational and subject-based learning, and personal and social development.

Our curriculum is enhanced by the deep rooted support of the sports specialism embedded into lessons and the Work Related Learning opportunities that our young people experience in developing their self-confidence and communication skills.

At Friars we feel that good behaviour and a positive attitude towards work is important and that everyone is entitled to work in a safe, supportive environment in order to feel valued, independent and an active learner. Pupils follow a Rewards System and continue to join in with celebration/rewards assemblies where appropriate
