Curriculum

The Curriculum at Grafham Grange School is broad, balanced and diverse.

The vision of the school, and as such the intention of the curriculum at Grafham Grange School, is to provide every child with access to an academic education at a level appropriate to them which is further tailored to meet their needs with opportunities for vocational learning. This is combined with support to help them to learn strategies to deal with the anxiety and challenges they face, which impacts on their belief that they can succeed in any form of education.

The school offers children, for whom education has been a challenge, a range of academic subjects giving them the opportunity to achieve at GCSE as they would be offered in mainstream education; there is no lowering of expectation. This pathway is then tailored to their individual needs. These individual needs may be meet with GCSE examinations, Entry Level examinations, Functional Skills, BTecs, along with access to more vocational opportunities during the Needs Led Curriculum.

Further details for each age group can be obtained within this section of the website
