Our School Offer
McKee College offers its students an excellent opportunity to continue with their current studies or to start afresh. Our aim is to;
- Assess each student to ensure that we understand their needs and how we can personalise their learning experience.
- Provide a curriculum on par with their mainstream experience delivered by specialist teachers.

- Prepare our students to be ready for the next steps in their lives.
McKee College operates over 3 sites;
- College House in Poulton

Each site has a particular group of learners which benefit from a personalised learning experience, underpinned by the culture and ethos of McKee College.
All of our students have the opportunity to study a curriculum which is in line with mainstream secondary, delivered by specialist teachers in small class sizes with a maximum of 8 students. The classrooms are well resourced and usually have an additional teaching assistant in support. Our current GCSE offer is;

As well as the excellent teaching of each of the 11 GCSE course we offer, students will also have a key worker who will support them and communicate regularly with home. The relationship with the key worker is invaluable in ensuring that lines of communication are open and regular.
All students who attend McKee College are assessed to identify any unmet learning needs which may have gone unnoticed in prior settings. This information will help us better meet each students individual needs be they in supporting learning or applying for exam concessions.
We offer a very high level of student support as part of our standard offer to all students but if necessary we will involve an Educational Psychologist to develop additional supporting strategies or write a report to support an EHCP.
As well as our core GCSE offer we can offer combined curriculum of Vocational and Academic courses for Year 11 students. These typically involve undertaking a part time college course over 3 or 4 days and attending McKee College on the other days to continue studying for GCSE English, Maths, Science and ICT.
Our offer is designed to meet the needs of the wide range of learners we work with, ensuring that they are engaged and are ready for the next steps be that college, apprenticeship or work with education.
To ensure that as many students as possible have a positive destination we give unparalleled support through our CIAG programme (Careers Independent Advice Guidance). This includes career fairs, interviews, support with applications and visits to providers.
