All students at Baycroft School have access to the full range of National Curriculum subjects. At Key Stage 4 this is supplemented with option courses along with college and work experience placements, as well as enterprise and work-related learning. Opportunities for accreditation include GCSEs, BTECs, Entry Level Certificate of Achievement and Entry Pathway unit awards.
We recognise that the curriculum needs to be well matched to individual students’ needs and interests, and also that it needs to be personally challenging. Students are helped to make progress at a pace appropriate to their abilities and needs. Those experiencing difficulties in English and Maths have interventions to boost progress in these subjects; those students who are particularly able also have the opportunity for extra support to move on their achievement.
