Our curriculum is mainly based on the areas of study suggested by each young person’s home school. This is so that continuity is maintained and students continue to progress within their usual setting. Where this is not possible or appropriate, Rhodes Wood Hospital School has developed its own holistic curriculum to ensure it meets the need of each student. Young people with neurodevelopmental disorders and learning needs mainly follow an alternative curriculum that focuses upon developing core skills and life skills, this is personalised for each individual student.
Our students range from Key Stage 2 where the Hamilton Curriculum is followed into Key Stage where a wide variety of subjects including animation are available. At both Key Stage 4 and 5, opportunity to hone skills and learning experiences are offered within the context of the hospital setting.
