Values and Ethos
Our school provides a high quality learning experience for all children with highly structured lessons which allow children to gain confidence in their subjects and excel in their examinations. These are supplemented by work experience, an excellent ‘preparation for examinations’ programme, and a wealth of extra-curricular activities.
Opportunities are sought to provide real world experiences tailored to the medical profession including our daily reading programme where young people broaden their knowledge about the sector through fiction and nonfiction texts.
Guided by local healthcare employers, we offer a range of academic and vocational qualifications at Levels 2 and 3, including GCSEs in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English and Maths at Key Stage 4 and A Levels and Level 3 Vocational qualifications at Key Stage 5.
Crucially, we offer work placements linked directly to employment opportunities in the medical and healthcare sector. Our Sixth Form students spend one day a week in placement, KS4 students have an opportunity to prepare for work placement and work experience.
Our students gain a broad range of employability, life and character building skills and we expect our students to progress on to university, further training, apprenticeship and into employment after completing their studies at Scott College.
We also value the spirit of adventure and have a wide ranging trips and visits programme to provide opportunities for travel and expeditions.
