Welcome to S5A
We are a year 11 class based at Canterbury Academy. Where we enjoy a host of work-related activities and follow the national Curriculum. We have begun to work towards a diploma in Life and Living skills. We will also be working towards functional skills qualifications in Maths and English. Every monday we do a work-related learning trip, most often to Samphire Hoe country park in Dover. We help the park ranger with a variety of his tasks such as checking the life safety rings, clearing vegetation and checking the condition of the signs for the public. Every Friday we have drama and art and our currently working on the Shakespeare for school’s project. We run a mini enterprise project making cement decorations for the garden . These can be purchased and make lovely presents.
