The basic curriculum is enhanced by:

  • Physical Education

  • Humanities – History and Geography
  • ICT and Computing
  • Technology
  • Religious Education and opportunities to come together as a group

At Endeavour Academy our students learn by taking part in a range of activities, from listening to music and singing, swimming, visits to the park, playing and cooking. Our teachers work to get each of our students to focus on their learning. Every morning we have a sensory circuit to help them be alert and calm.

We understand that communication skills are vital for our students' futures. We use a Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) to support speaking, listening and understanding and it is used throughout the Academy.

We teach life skills, including how to be around others and work to improve each of our students' confidence. Our teachers help each of our students learn how to apply their learning to real life situations by leaving the classroom. For example, students will be taught how to manage their own money by visiting the local supermarket and cafe. This allows young people to start to use the skills they have developed in the classroom in more practical contexts.
