Bishopswood School


Our children measure their success in many ways not necessarily through taking formal examinations.  We aspire to help our pupils become independent, to know how to feel and how to stay safe within their emotions; know how to look after themselves and where they can access help; to have their own voice and communicate freely; to have the skills to take ownership of their learning through exploration and choice making. They are supported to be proud of who they are and are empowered to make choices.  We follow the EQUALS curriculum, you can see more about this by selecting the link on the right or clicking Curriculum.

Bishopswood School subscribes to the ASDAN scheme (Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network) and offers the Transition Challenge, a scheme specifically designed for students with severe learning difficulties, (the ASDAN Youth Award programme is also available for pupils who require more of a challenge.)  Coursework is externally moderated for a certificate to be issued.  Some students in years 9-11 attend the Countryside Stewardship Course at the Earth Trust.

We are required by law to publish details of exam and assessment results.  Please note these performance measures are not current (as 2019-20 and 2020-21 performance measures have not been published by the Government due to the COVID-19 pandemic).
