Curriculum for Life – Our Curriculum at Pioneer House
At Pioneer House, our curriculum is purposefully designed around the four Preparation for Adulthood outcomes: Better Health, Independent Living, Friends, Relationships and Community and Employment. We believe that education is not just about academic achievement but also about equipping our students with the skills and knowledge they need to thrive in the future.
Organising our curriculum subjects under these pillars ensures that every subject has a clear end point, and outcomes which support our students’ future lives. In Key Stage 3 students study a range of subjects which prepare them with the essential skills and knowledge, ensuring that they are prepared for their next stage of learning as they move through the school. Students in Key Stage 4 and 5 complete work experience placements and those on the Vocational Pathway work towards a range accredited qualifications.
Whether it's numeracy, science, food and nutrition or any other subject, our goal is to instill the knowledge, critical thinking abilities, and practical skills that will empower our students to navigate the complexities of adulthood with confidence and resilience. By emphasizing these essential life skills throughout our curriculum, we are committed to preparing our students for the challenges and opportunities that await them beyond the classroom.
