At Highshore School we enable our pupils to gain the skills, confidence and opportunities needed to progress to employment, meaningful voluntary opportunities and training. Our pupils tell us that they want to make a contribution to society. We are a central London school and expect our pupils to be active citizens.
In Key Stage 3 our pupils start the day with Literacy and Numeracy, usually taught by their form teacher. We teach subjects such as Social Communication and Lego therapy, which your child might not have encountered in primary school, as well as the full range of National curriculum subjects. All our Key stage 3 pupils have regular swimming in addition to their PE lessons.
In Keystage 4 pupils work towards a variety of accreditations including Entry Level, Asdan and Functional Skills.
Our Sixth form programme includes one day a week college link and for many pupls one day a week work experience placement. The focus of the sixth form is allowing our pupils to gain as much independence skills as possible. Travel training forms part of our programme for those pupils who are not independent travellers.
Highshore has a Pupil Development Centre where pupils spend time in activities of daily living, such as make beds, wash up and do the washing. We also have a Specialist dyslexia team who support pupils both in and out of class.
