Preparation for Adulthood

Preparation for Adulthood & Careers

Our aim is for students to leave the Sixth Form being confident and independent young people and be fully prepared for life after Pield Heath so that they can live purposeful and meaningful lives. The Curriculum is relevant and engaging to the young person in order for them to develop and achieve their aspirations and goals. Students will leave with a clear idea of what they want to do in the future, their strengths and possible career or community inclusion pathways and be better able to manage transition.

Students begin working on preparation for adulthood skills from Key Stage 2 right through until Key Stage 5. The curriculum for each pathway is intended to provide the students with the necessary skills and experiences in preparation for their adult lives. Within Key Stage 5, this takes the form of learning in real life contexts. Whether this is accessing the community or keeping a house clean and tidy. Pield Heath House School has a range of facilities to give students opportunities to experience real life settings.

The 8 Gatsby Benchmarks have been implemented across the school and further details about how the school meets the benchmarks can be found in our Preparation for Adulthood handbook (LINK).
