6th Form

Quest class is part of the CLICK pathway, and students work towards a range of Preparing for Adulthood outcomes. The focus on transition and ways in which students can be supported towards their best next steps is a core part of our offer.

Students take part in work experience opportunities and volunteering in the community. Supported Internships are available if students would prefer to seek employment, rather than attend college or day service providers post-Wyvern. We offer a taster break residential to Foxes Hotel, the only training hotel in the country for students with learning difficulties. Students on this taster break will learn a range of hospitality, catering and general housekeeping skills.

Students in Quest will study Entry Level to Level 1 and 2 Functional Skills English, Maths and ICT, as well as Careers learning, Leisure, Food Tech, Youth Action, Duke of Edinburgh or Young Enterprise, Independent Living Skills, PSHE and Sport. We aim to make lessons meaningful and with a real life focus and context.

Safari is a Sensory Life Skills class. In Safari, our learners work within a highly individualised curriculum which seeks to develop independence, supporting transition into adult life.

This includes:

  • developing effective communication strategies across all contexts
  • maintaining sensory and emotional regulatory strategies
  • increasing confidence and security in community settings
  • fostering a curiosity about the wider world and supporting learners to undertake activities relevant to their personal interests
  • working on practical skills which promote independence across all areas of life.
