Sparrow Combined Technical Skills School provides a learner-centred approach, as we teach towards potential, and are constantly mindful of individual learner strengths and weaknesses. By focusing on the holistic growth of each learner as well as individual skills development, we equip them with the opportunity to pursue future employment as well as further education and training. We offer programmes within the school that are hands-on and that require the learner to practically engage with the material being taught. This is essential in special needs teaching as it gives the student a starting point when having to grapple with higher-order thinking.
The Sparrow Combined Technical Skills School provides English, Maths, Natural Science and Personal and Social Wellbeing alongside a heavy skills-based training curriculum of Hospitality and Wholesale and Retail, allowing the learners to gain an employable skill.
In the Hospitality or Wholesale and Retail classes, learner spend 75% of their time doing practical work and getting a real-life understanding of what it means to pursue a career within that industry. The other 25% of their time is spent in the classroom learning the theory behind the practical. On top of our practical learning, Sparrow Combined Technical Skills School also offers new innovative lessons and a supportive curriculum which has improved the learner’s ability to engage effectively with their school work.

The Extramural Programmes on offer are Djembe Drumming, Choir, Marimbas, Boxing and Boardgames. We have seen these programmes to be hugely beneficial to the learners as they have helped them develop their self-esteem, listening skills, creativity and social skills.
