We recognise that students with communication, socialisation and imagination difficulties all have different skills and attributes. At LVS Oxford students learn a range of relevant academic and vocational skills in an environment that suits their individual needs.
LVS Oxford currently offers Vocational, Entry, Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 Qualifications.
2016 saw LVS Oxford receive its first ever GCSE results, with 100% of young people achieving A* - C grades. You can read more about our GCSE success here.
Level 3 A Level courses are offered to post-16 students who are able to access the learning (Maths, ICT and Art). These are offered in house or students are supported to attend a local further education college, depending on the course chosen.
Students work towards level 1 or 2 qualifications in the following subjects:
We give our students work within the school grounds and our outdoor classroom/polytunnel.
Some of the skills they learn and are assessed on include:
Our catering kitchen and school dining hall offer a fantastic environment to learn the skills needed for the catering and hospitality industry. Students can learn about food safety and preparation, basic cooking techniques, special diets and customer care.
All students complete a Literacy and Numeracy qualification alongside their NVQ.

Many of the tasks the students undertake will help build competencies in citizenship, relating to others, managing situations and working as part of a team - all key to being fulfilled and employable adults.
