Core Subjects

Core Subjects visual


English, Maths and ICT are core academic subjects at the Courtyard. English, Maths and ICT can be accessed via the A/AS, GCSE or Functional Skills routes depending upon the young person’s ability and prior knowledge before joining the Courtyard.

We also offer the ECDL Level 3 range of qualifications in ICT once pupils have passed Functional Skills Level 2.

Please use the + option in the left hand menu bar to access the individual subject pages where you can see the Intent, Implementation and Impact statements, together with the Teaching Overview for our Core Subjects.

Learning is differentiated to take account of each pupil's individual needs, so pupils are taught in groups according to their stage of learning as opposed to their age.
Pupils are taught in class sizes of no more than 8 pupils, often less, as we recognise that our pupils learn best in calm, quiet environments where they are able to focus on their learning with reduced sensory overload.
