About Key Stage 5

"Ready for Work"

The main focus in Key Stage 5 is to prepare our young people to be ‘ready for work;’ this includes furthering their education, preparing for college, apprenticeships, supported internships and work placements.


Students can stay in Key Stage 5 for 1, 2 or 3 years in years 12, 13 and 14. During this time we develop their academic, functional and life skills in preparing them for their next stage.

Life skills linked to employment, independent living, community and inclusion and health are at the forefront of our curriculum under the Preparing for Adulthood theme. Support and guidance are the keys for students and their families in transition from Weatherfield Academy to ensure they have the capacity to be as independent as possible in all areas.

The students build on all the skills they have learned during their journey at Weatherfield Academy and continue to develop them to the best they can, these include: -​

  • Structured routine offering personalised learning to meet the needs of each individual student

  • Self-belief, confidence and self-esteem continue to be nurtured for all students

  • Managing emotions and feelings as our young people grow up is vital in self-development

  • We expect all students to ‘try their best’ at all times

  • We expect all students to be respectful to everyone around them
