The Sixth Form department at Three Ways offers students exciting opportunities to develop their academic and social skills as their move towards adulthood. Our curriculum therefore reflects the changes and transitions that young people begin to experience from 16 to 19 and beyond. Our curriculum is built around the functional skills in Literacy, Numeracy and Personal Social Health Education. The work of our students is accredited by the AQA Exam Board Unit Award Scheme. This offers differentiated opportunities based on the level the student is working at, allowing personalisation and creativity. Students continue to study a broad and balanced curriculum which also includes Drama/Music links with a local Secondary School, Water Mobility Sessions, Communication sessions and Music Therapy.
Some of our students may work within the department for up to three years, whilst we support others to access college after 1-2 years, depending on the transition plan. We support young people to visit a range of colleges and housing placements in order to inform their choice making. Young people engage in accessible work experience opportunities and receive support to set this up. Transition meetings ensure that students with a higher level of need continue to have regular support and any areas of development are pursued.
Key Stage 5 staff work within a multidisciplinary team including Learning Partnership West, therapy services and parents/carers in order to support our young people.
