School Curriculum

The Progress Schools curriculum is bespoke, diverse and lively and designed to inspire learning in small steps but most of all, its purposeful and entrenched in work towards further qualifications to support positive futures. We take the time to work with the whole student and identify any barriers towards success, this may be anxiety or additional needs. We work alongside local work placements and companies offering work experience so that students can try out their chosen career and work towards additional qualifications towards this.
