Every student at Applemore College has the opportunity to follow all National Curriculum subjects as well as following an appropriate GCSE curriculum pathway.

Our range of curriculum pathways ensure that all students are able to access the right options for them.  We endeavour to offer the opportunity to follow a curriculum specifically designed to develop a range of skills and to give students self-confidence through their learning.

We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between students with SEND and those who have not. This may include after school interventions, short-term intervention learning programmes, home-school intervention learning programmes or other learning interventions developed on an individual needs basis.

We have good attendance at Applemore College as students want to come to school to experience our high quality learning environment.
