Learning for Life Campus
Soaring through learning
Welcome to Learning for Life Campus
Learning for Life Campus is home to Key Stage 4 learners aged 14 to 16. Located at 2 sites – Broomfield School and Cyprus Road – our students are ‘Soaring’ as they build independence, attend college and gain work experience.
Our curriculum enables students to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the subjects they studied in Key Stage 3 and gain recognised qualifications.
We offer a range of enrichment and extracurricular activities to help your child to improve their cultural awareness, broaden their horizons, and develop new interests as they begin preparing for adulthood. And we timetable activities that build independence and life skills at this key stage in your child’s development.
Our campus staff work hard to ensure your young person will be happy and safe at school. We believe it’s a privilege to work in partnership with you and your children as they continue to build on their knowledge and skills.
For more information about moving from Key Stage 3 to Key Stage 4, please read our transition booklet.
KEY STAGE 4
Your child continues to enjoy a full timetable at Key Stage 4 that includes English, Maths, Science, Computing, Knowledge of the World (History, Geography and Religious Education), Creative (Art, Music and Drama), and Personal Development (PE, PSHE and Life and Work – which includes Design and Technology, Catering, Citizenship and Careers).
We structure and sequence learning so that students build on existing knowledge and skills step-by-step, and reach their potential. Many subjects finish with exams and controlled assessments at the end of Key Stage 4.
To build independence and life skills, your child will:
- Go to college one day a week to experience different vocational ‘taster lessons’
- Take part in work experience placements, which we aim to match to their hobbies, interests and future career aspirations
- Work with specialist travel trainers to develop the confidence and ability to travel independently – which gives them greater choice for post 16 study, opens up more opportunity for future employment, and widens access to social activities
We help learners to look ahead to Key Stage 5 and beyond, whether they’re continuing their journey at West Lea or venturing further afield.
