Literacy Pathway

Literacy is a mandatory component of qualifications at The Bee Hive.

Literacy Pathway

Literacy is the foundation to support our students access the wider curriculum and gain essential skills for employability.  All students at The Bee Hive access literacy through functional skills and through their work skills qualification. We offer qualifications from entry level 1 through to level 2.  Functional skills allows students to access a different type of English. The courses focus on a more work based literacy.  We cover speaking and listening, reading and writing. Students are able to leave The Bee Hive with qualifications that allow them to use literacy in various aspects of work and life, including familiar and unfamiliar scenarios.

Students, who have already achieved their GCSE, are invited to join the student journalism hive. As part of the journalism hive, students gain the opportunity to work with our business team further developing their skills through creating articles for the school web page and newsletter.

Parents are very pleased with the progress their children make. They comment on the excellent progress their children have made in their academic work and personal skills…
