Our Curriculum 


Applebee Wood has developed a bespoke personalised curriculum so that all pupils benefit from truly individualised learning with reference to the National Curriculum. 


Teachers' planning ensures that pupils take part in activities which are meaningful and interesting for them and through which they address relevant and challenging learning outcomes. This enables all pupils to maximise their progress.


The curriculum is designed to help our pupils become:

  • Successful learners who enjoy learning and make outstanding progress.
  • Effective communicators who can express themselves, make choices and build positive relationships with other people.
  • Confident individuals who take a full part in activities within school and the community.
  • Responsible citizens who behave well and make a positive contribution to the school and the wider world.
  • Lifelong learners who leave school equipped for the adult world whether in paid employment, education or supported living.


All secondary aged pupils access accredited courses including GCSE, and Entry Level where appropriate. Applebee Wood works  in partnership with alternative education providers to offer a range of courses to meet individual needs and aspirations.
