A broad and balanced Curriculum

The Curriculum at Merit has been designed to mirror that offered by mainstream schools. This enables students to effectively transition back to school and to gain the GCSEs they need to access further education post 16.


Teachers at Merit are fully qualified subject specialists who have designed schemes of work aligned to the National Curriculum. Class sizes are small, which enables personalised learning that can be adapted to suit individual needs. 


We are ambitious for our students, ensuring they access a Curriculum that is  academically rigorous but also rich in experience outside the classroom. We prioritise the mental health and well being of our students in everything we do, offering a nurturing, supportive environment where students can thrive and achieve.
