Academic

Appleford offers a range of subjects delivered by an experienced and highly qualified body of teachers. Lessons are undertaken in well-equipped classrooms with high levels of Learning Support Assistants (LSAs) making use of the latest multi-sensory resources. Our IT facilities offer an unrivalled ratio of computers per child in every classroom.

Class based lessons are also developed through a range of off-site experiences including visits to art galleries, museums, theatre trips and historical sites.

In the Summer Term, Year 8 pupils make their subject choices for Year 9. These include a core of English, Maths, Science and ICT.

PSHE, Citizenship and careers guidance is provided for through the group tutor system.

All pupils, as part of their options, have the opportunity to engage in a range of vocational courses leading to GCSE equivalent qualifications at 16.  These include a selection of BTEC courses and the National Vocational Certificate.  Additionally, pupils learn vital life and functional skills which help them access a successful adult life.
