City School Kingswood Curriculum

City School Kingwood’s Vision

City School Kingswood vision is to provide our young people with the skills, experiences and qualifications to secure a positive and prosperous future. We deliver Alternative Provision for Students with Educational Health Care Plans (EHCPs) and other complex SEND needs.

City School Kingswood recognises that students are all individuals with different strengths and areas to develop. We use these strengths to build success whilst acknowledging areas to support students; create learning opportunities and develop bespoke programs enabling all students to thrive.

Learning Outside the classroom

We have also put aside one afternoon a week for a whole group activity taking in the historical, cultural and environmental aspect of the City and its surroundings.

This will aid advancement in their personal experiences and development

Our School

Our site comprises of two buildings tucked away in central Kingswood.

The extensive grounds and quiet location give a rural feel that benefits students requiring space to learn. The large area of land lends itself well to learning outside the classroom. Students run and manage their own small holding as well as helping to tend the gardens.

Students can gain qualifications in Land Based Studies and Animal Care as a result of their endeavours.
