Key Stage 3

Our Key Stage 3 offer is divided into three pathways, reflecting the differing needs of our ASD/SLD cohort. It caters for our most vulnerable and complex students to students who are able to access school and life a little more independently.

Pathway 1 – for our most complex and vulnerable students

Pathway 2 – for our students who are a little more independent

Pathway 3 – for our most independent learners

Personalised curriculums are designed to achieve individual long term outcomes – ensuring that students make good progress and leave with the skills and independence they require for their next steps, post Addington Valley Academy.

I think your school and staff are amazing – you have wowed me!
