A small number of students go into mainstream schools to access specific curriculum areas of strength leading to GCSE examination. A team of support staff work alongside students going into mainstream classes, offer help with the completion of coursework and catch-up sessions for key lessons missed. Students primarily work with Mr Thompson in preferred subject areas at Marden High School.


Students are assessed by staff at Southlands school and Marden High and must have reached the appropriate level in order for them to be able to meet the course demands.


From this year, we are also running a Level 2 Arts Award qualification  at Southlands school led by Miss Martin-Wright.  This course has places for a maximum of 4 students in Years 10 and 11.
