Thomasson Secondary Provision (TSP) curriculum is designed to give a balanced and broad based education that ensures all students achieve their potential. The curriculum is differentiated to meet the needs of all pupils and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
At Key Stage 4 all students are taught Maths, English Science at either GCSE or Entry Level. Students access the Arts, Humanities, Design and Technology by choosing these as ‘Option’ subjects. These subjects are delivered at both GCSE and Entry Level.
Our Key Stage 4 curriculum is reviewed on an annual basis to ensure the needs of each cohort are met.
To ensure all students achieve their potential TSP offers two academic routes; mainstream and TSP taught lessons. If suitable a combination of the two routes can be followed.
