The Curriculum

If you are attending any school or college we will work with your teachers so that you can continue your normal curriculum as best as possible while you are in hospital.   Being a small team of teachers we are experienced in teaching  most subjects up to GCSE level and some up to A Level.  Take a look at the                         section of the website to see what subjects we all enjoy teaching.  However; there are times that our pupils come to us studying subjects such as Japanese.  In these instances we will facilitate your learning the best we can while working together with your mainstream teachers who can point us all in the right direction!  

 

You will be able to discuss with you teachers where in your timetable you will be studying which of your subjects.   A good idea is to download your timetable from this page so that you can tailor it around your individual programme of study; we can help you, if you wish.

Alternative Curriculum

Nant y Bryniau endeavours to offer all young people at NWAS an experience within the school day that matches their individual needs.  For some, the traditional, conventional school based curriculum will not be appropriate or adequate, at NyB we strive to provide a tailor made, individualised experience that makes attendance in education meaningful and worthwhile.
