Hornbeam Hub – Towards Independence Department

Welcome to Hornbeam Hub! We are working in the Towards Independence Department, undertaking accreditations in Maths, English and Skills for Living and Work. We enjoy real-life, practical learning as this makes topics more accessible to us. We also focus on Preparing for Adulthood skills as well as undertaking a range of work experience sessions at Dobbies, Craft Barn, Food Bank and in our school café. We are also launching an exciting enterprise topic where we hope to raise money for our end of year Prom.

As well as focussing on our Maths and English skills, we follow a broad curriculum including science, cooking, PE, art and design technology, computing, MFL, history and geography and PHSE. We also access Rebound Therapy and Hydrotherapy sessions for pupils that benefit from this.

We celebrate all our successes and achievements and work hard to earn house points and treat points. Hornbeam Hub are a bubbly, happy group who enjoy learning and trying new experiences together.
