Our Curriculum

Our students enjoy a broad curriculum based around the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), designed to unlock future career paths. Their academic learning is complemented with the development of ‘soft’ skills, such as teamwork, communication and resilience, helping them to become independent adults who are able to manage their emotional wellbeing. 

Throughout their time with us, students can achieve a range of qualifications, from pre-entry-level certificates through to higher-grade GCSEs, and benefit from a range of high-quality opportunities to work with local employers and participate in industry-related activities. 

We help each student to identify and develop their unique skills, talents and abilities, so that they can choose a post-16 route that works for them – whether that’s further education, vocational training or employment.

Subjects taught include:

  • Maths, English and Science
  • History and Geography
  • Computing and ICT
  • Engineering and Arts
  • Employability and Independent Living Skills
  • Social Skills and Cognitive Behavioural Skills
Integrated therapy

We offer a range of clinical and therapeutic interventions at Aurora Severnside, designed to help our students overcome barriers to participation in education. 

These are delivered by highly skilled staff in a class setting, using an integrated therapeutic model. This enables us to offer flexible and responsive support whenever and wherever it is needed most, and to ensure that all support follows a single, student-centred plan.

We monitor and adapt our approach for each student through a personalised Annual Review meeting, which puts the student at the heart of the process and involves a range of academic and therapeutic staff.
