Our broad and balanced curriculum has been designed to support the students to reach their full potential.

The subjects are built on each year and lead towards some external qualifications through Ascentis and ASDAN accreditations.Independent Living Skills are a key part of the curriculum and the 3-year Sixth Form prepares students for their next exciting chapter after Mayfield School.
Students complete ASDAN Employability courses to prepare them.

Work Experience in our Sixth Form covers a range of learning opportunities and
experiences. These include participation in:

  • Horticulture at Grow West
  • Café West, Whitehaven
  • The Duke Of Edinburgh Award in the community
  • Work experience at trusted and familiar work place settings in the community or in school work opportunities (e.g Office work, site mantainance, working with younger students) 
  • Opportunity to attend Lakes College course each year.

A number of events, integrated into the school careers programme, will offer providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to pupils and/or their parents:
