In years, 9 and 10 pupils undertake a Level 2 BTEC qualification through a combination of practical experience and written assignments. We actively engage pupils in the processes of Health and Social Care to help them develop as effective and independent learners. We encourage pupils to understand aspects of personal development and the health, social care and early-years sectors through investigation and evaluation of a range of services and organisations; this continues into year 10 and 11 where pupils examine issues that affect the nature and quality of human life including an appreciation of diversity and cultural issues.
The current cohort of year 11 are completing their OCR GCSE in Health and Social Care which includes a controlled assessment that is worth 60% of their overall grade. The exam is then worth 40% which the pupils will complete in June 2017.
