Phase 4 Independence Curriculum

In Phase 4, Years 12 and 13, are taught on site for a minimum of 3 days per week at our Tonbridge site. The remaining 2 days are split between off site activities of which one day per week is allocated to work experience or development of work skills.


Phase 4 has its own separate and distinctive work, study rooms and reception area where students can relax at lunch time and during break. They also spend time away from school in the local community, at local colleges of further education, and take part in community projects and work experience.


Students are allocated to tutorial groups of around ten students and individual tutorials are arranged weekly. They are offered a range of pre-vocational, vocational and leisure courses in addition to providing opportunities to further development of core skills. The programme varies, as it adapts to meet individual needs, capabilities and interests.


Students achieve a range of accreditation including Functional Skills, BTec, ASDAN modules from Towards Independence, Life Skills Challenge, Short Courses, Employability, CoPE, Arts Award and Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award Units.
