We offer an individual learning plan for all our students, whereby we work with host schools or the local authority to provide a timetable that blends into the students overall curriculum.

As a part time provision, we offer a blended plan taking into consideration the school on rolls requirements and other provisions whereby the students attend.

Overall, we believe that all children should have a bespoke education package and the opportunity to receive a varied and rewarding timetable.

At Cirque, we ensure that minimum core subjects are taught throughout all courses by blending functional skills into core paperwork.
