Curriculum

Students at Edith Kay Independent school are taught in a variety of ways, according to their individual needs. All students will have morning and afternoon registrations together, as this is a vital opportunity for them to reflect on their successes and to interact positively with staff and peers. One lesson a week is dedicated to Personal, Social, Health and Careers Education.

There are five teaching sessions per day plus time for registration and breaks. We actively encourage our young people to attend educational trips and excursions into the local community as well as to undertake work experience where appropriate. All curriculum areas are unpinned by our nurturing ethos and we aim to instil a lifelong love of learning by finding the activities and interests that will motivate each individual learner, thus making the learning relevant to their own life experiences.

At Edith Kay we find and nurture each young person’s unique spark.
