Qualifications & Curriculum

Hawthorn Education offers each of its students a comprehensive, bespoke curriculum, designed just for them.

Their learning pathway is created in conjunction with their current school or education provider, in order to compliment and enhance past and present learning, whilst ensuring measurable progress at all stages.

We are able to do this by putting into place a hand-picked team of specialist teachers, to create the perfect blend for every student.

We are able to offer teaching across the following areas:

  • GCSEs
  • ‘A’ levels
  • Entry Level
  • Functional Skills
  • Step Up to English
  • Open Awards
  • City & Guilds

We also offer equine therapy, courtesy of our stables. This is ideal for students who require an alternative to traditional therapy. Our fully qualified equine therapist uses the horses and associated stable work, as a conduit through which to engage young people.

Please contact us to find our more about what we can offer.
