Young Women's Hub


Curriculum Implementation

We have a highly personalised approach to planning a curriculum for a student. We have a significant number of students with disrupted educational experience and therefore the subjects and level are based on our identification of gaps and not on age. We work with the student and parent/carer to identify a bespoke curriculum and review on a half termly basis.

Below is an over overview of the subjects offered, and we use Edexcel for all examination subjects:

Math’s- GCSE Foundation level, Functional Skills Entry Level-Level 2
English- GCSE English Language, GCSE English Literature, Functional Skills Entry Level- Level 2
Science- ASDAN Science
Humanities- ASDAN Humanities, ASDAN Beliefs and Values GCSE History
Arts- ASDAN Expressive Arts
Technology- ASDAN Food Technology
Prince’s Trust “Achieve”
BTEC Hair and Beauty Level 1 Award
BTEC Tech Award Health and Social Care Level 1/2
All students study PE and ASDAN PSHE

Curriculum Impact

We strive to ensure that all students leave us with qualifications in a broad and balanced curriculum that is appropriate for them. This might be GCSEs or BTECs or it might be ASDAN short course certificates. In addition, we provide highly personalised careers support, including work experience placements for Year 10 students, to ensure that no child leaves us not in education, employment, and training.

We track students' progress during their time with us and work closely on closing gaps in knowledge and understanding in all subjects. We also track the qualitative impact for the student through self-assessments on life skills and emotional well-being at the beginning and the end of the placement.

Student and Parent/Carer testimonials also evidence the significant impact that the Hub has on the young women we work with. Below are a few key quotes which demonstrate the impact of the curriculum for all our girls:

Testimonials from students

Being at the YWH has also helped me with what I would like to do when I leave school, and this has made me feel more confident with post 16.
I had more access to support with my education and learning and felt as though I was being listened to and heard more.
I am really proud that I have been able to sit my exams, especially speaking and listening, because if I was still at school, I believe I would not have done them.
I am very proud that I have been accepted with a place at college and can move on without struggling.
I have learned a lot more in my lessons and enjoyed my lessons.
