The Learning Journey 

"Our Vision"

Hamilton School provides an ambitious, varied and unique programme of learning. Our curriculum is designed to provide our young people with real, engaging, and positive experiences; supporting personal development and underpinned by an environment that is focused on community. As a specialist SEMH school, we understand how important each individual is to their own Learning Journey and that is why we place them directly at the centre.

Our Blended Learning Model allows us to deliver a broad and balanced subject offering, a variety of optional and vocational pathways, therapeutic interventions and experiences, targeted literacy and numeracy interventions, social communication skills and individual project work, all of which are intended to create a pathway to provide achievable outcomes at all levels and key life-skills to equip our young people for success.

The ability to provide learning both on-site and off-site allows us to be inclusive and accessible to all.

 

Curriculum Intent

Hamilton School aims to provide a broad and balanced curriculum to all students, whilst ensuring that their SEMH needs are met through a therapeutic school’s approach.

In doing this all students will have the learning opportunities and skills to be able to make informed pathway choices so as to become productive young adults able to access apprenticeship, education and employment.

  • High standards and coherence placing our curriculum vision at the heart;
  • A core of essential knowledge and skills in key subject disciplines;
  • Carefully planned, memorable experiences that put learning into context;
  • A wide range of opportunities that foster personal development;
