The School provides educational support for pupils who are unable to be in mainstream school by virtue of a decision made by a medical practitioner. 

Pupils are entitled to a full time education, or as much education as their medical needs will allow. 

Pupils are taught either in the home or in one of four bases located in the county. 

Pupils have access to a wide range of GCSE and BTEC programs at KS4. 

At KS3 pupils follow either their home school's curriculum or they will follow a Pilgrim led curriculum. 

At KS1-2 pupils always follow the curriculum of their mainstream school. 

Pupils have full access to careers education, PSHE and our own resilience and post traumatic growth course Resilient Me. 

Careers Education

We provide a careers education and impartial guidance  programme in line with latest Government guidelines.  This consists of pastoral support and a programme of  careers education throughout key stage 3 and 4  delivered through the tutorial system.  Year 11 pupils taught in the home are given pastoral support to make post 16 choices.

Kinema in The Woods School Trip - Ralph Breaks The Internet

We had a very successful cinema trip with over 70 pupils and staff in attendance.  Pupils and staff were treated to a showing of 'Ralph breaks the Internet', the sequel to 'Wreck It Ralph'.  Everyone, of all ages, really enjoyed the film, even though some of the oldies did not understand what half of it was about!  The pupils were amazing and represented themselves and the school perfectly.

Amber Hill - Community Coffee Morning

Amber Hill recently held a community coffee morning as part of the pupil’s Vocational Study course and also to build relationships with the local village. Pupils baked cakes for the event which were sold to raise money and tea and coffee was served for free. We were delighted to have 20 visitors from the village who were genuinely pleased that the school was open again after many years of being closed. Many thanks to LC and LS for organising the cake bake with pupils.

Celebrating Success - Dress as your Hero for Remembrance Day

Thanks to DA for organising a ‘Heroes’ morning at Amber Hill as part of the Remembrance celebrations this year. Pupils and staff were encouraged to come dressed as their hero and time was spent reflecting on what a true hero was before acknowledging the two minute silence at the war memorial which is positioned just inside the school grounds.
