Learning and Outcomes

- see links in Blue box for further details 


At Mount Tamar Specialist School, our curriculum is designed with the intent to recognise the individual potential of each student by allowing them to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience,  achieve their academic potential through partnerships with local universities and become independent lifelong learners. Our students are disadvantaged and face barriers to learning including heightened anxiety, trauma and attachment, low self-esteem, poor social skills, mental health difficulties and challenging behaviours.

The school supports our students with empathy and understanding and provides structure with clear aims that focus on the qualities and skills learners need to succeed. Every day should be an adventure as we help our students become adaptable and reflective communicators. As a school we all aspire to be our best and are creative, inquisitive, confident learners. We strive to achieve the impossible and cope with what is in front of us through respect, resourcefulness and risk taking.

The range of learning experiences we provide challenges, stimulates and promotes thinking and learning through our bespoke, holistic curriculum. As students progress through the school their offer is increasingly tailor-made to match their chosen career pathways.

Our highly personalised and flexible curriculum is designed to meet the needs of each individual in our care, underpinned by an unparalleled partnership with our families.

Involvement in the wider community is an essential part of our curriculum and encompasses national and international cultural learning experiences.

We believe that learning should have no limits. We are proud of the impact we have on the futures of our young people.
