Teaching at The Adolescent Unit School

Who do we teach?

The School is open to all inpatients at Marlborough House from Key Stage 3 to Key Stage 5 (Year 13).

At the start of the each school day, patients’ educational needs are assessed; those who are able to attend the school to participate in a morning of learning.

Where appropriate the school teachers will liaise with the pupil’s school to keep them informed of the pupil's progress.

The school can accommodate pupils in wheelchairs.

What do we teach?

A pupil’s home school curriculum is our first choice for teaching and learning. If this is not available (or not suitable), various strategies are used to promote engagement, teaching and learning. The teaching focus is on engagement and core curriculum,  plus a variety of additional subjects, as well as community activities.

In collaboration with a pupil’s school, we facilitate pupils to sit any external exams, for example, GCSEs.
