Curriculum Pathways

At HSD, we are committed to providing a curriculum which prepares our children and young people for a happy, productive and fulfilled adult life. We have high aspirations and encourage every person, pupil or staff member, to strive for excellence.  We promote independence and aim to provide skills which can prepare our students for life beyond school as well as giving them a sense of belonging.

Our curriculum is designed to cater for the needs of all learners. We teach the National Curriculum at a level appropriate to each learner.  English Math’s and PSHE are at the heart of our curriculum and students work towards academic or vocational qualifications, alongside this we offer discrete and meaningful opportunities for personal development, therapeutic support, and enrichment.
