Northern Counties School provides a specialist curriculum for each of its populations: Deaf / Hearing Impairment Department, PMLD Department or the Armstrong and Hillcrest Centres (Autism).

Each curriculum is further adapted according to each pupil’s  attainment level. Pupils work within strands A, S, E, N and D where A equates to the lower P levels, S to the higher P levels, E is for pupils working within Key Stage 1, N is Key Stage 2 and D Key Stage 3 of the National Curriculum. Specialist programmes for pupils with visual impairment operate throughout the school.

Each curriculum is designed to support the development of each pupil and is underpinned by  our three key drivers: Communication, Wellbeing and Independence and Functionality.
