All students in Y10 begin a two year ‘Transition Challenge’ programme. Depending on their Learning Style, they will complete a ‘Sensory’ or ‘Induction’ module.
In Y12, those who followed the Induction programme move on to ‘Personal Progress Units’ (PPU’s)
Sensory learners follow ‘Towards Independence’ modules. These accreditation courses are continued until students leave Green Park in Y14.

We also take part in the Duke Of Edinburgh Awards Scheme.
As a school we offer bronze and silver awards,
Pupils take part in a 3 month period of volunteering which has included cooking for a homeless shelter, planting a garden for children at the Haven.
3 months learning a new skill which includes cooking a healthy meal, packing a lunch box for a day's walking.
6 months of physical exercise which includes swimming, walking, using the gym.
Students then have a 1 night 2 days assessment expedition, followed by a 2 night 3 days qualifying expedition which includes camping, cooking their own food, navigating a walk, and teamwork.
Changes have been made for the covid period and students may experience alternative camping activities.
We have also liaised with DoE providers, and all learners, including sensory learners, are able to access the DoE experience this year.
All students who have been involved in the D of E award have been successful thanks to the hard work that the students and the D of E team put in.
It's a wonderful opportunity for students to excel, achieve and be proud of themselves.
