Glow Activity Update


Dear Parents, Carers and Students

I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe at this difficult time.

As we move into the new term we intend to provide a range of activity for our Step Unit Students in order to give the opportunity to maintain Language and Maths Skills and to give the opportunity to try some fun and interesting activities on a daily basis.

It is also an opportunity to keep in touch with their favourite teachers and to keep up contact!

This will be achieved using Glow Classrooms and Microsoft Teams.

All students have a glow login and password. Please encourage our students to log on and check in with the activities, they might even enjoy them, and will also be able to interact with classmates and friends.

We will continue to stay in touch on a regular basis and we can solve any issues as they arise as we adapt to new ways of keeping in touch and supporting each other.

We will also post a timetable of activity on social media outlets.


Keep healthy and stay safe.


With all best wishes.


Mr Coyle

Post 16 Curriculum and Senior Phase

In S5-S6 pupils become students and move to the Post 16 area or Step Unit for one or two years. Here the curriculum takes on a fairly radical change and places much greater emphasis on preparing students for the world of work and independent living.  Practical life and work skills are the main focus, with students spending more time at FE College placements and gaining experiences in vocational areas. Core skills are integrated into all areas and more student choice is available in vocational, healthy lifestyle and community involvement areas throughout the two years.

The Curriculum for Excellence principles are used to give a broad based curriculum with flexibility to meet individual needs ensuring our students are confident, effective, successful and responsible citizens. All students are fully involved in their learning and gain National Certification in almost all areas. Each year students also enjoy a residential experience either in Britain or abroad.  Students leaving the Post 16 area will choose to move to Further Education College, Training for Work or may have the opportunity to be involved in work initiatives. Students and parents are fully involved in the transitional planning process with the Careers Service.
