Welcome to 11L

In 11L the teaching and learning is based around Entry Level and Functional Skills criteria, which is specifically designed to meet the needs of all learners and ensure that every student leaves Market Field having achieved some qualifications.

The curriculum builds upon previous learning and enables our students to gain a qualification that is recognised across the UK, acknowledging the different starting points of our students.

Entry Level and Functional Skills qualifications are ideal for those students who are not quite ready for GCSEs as they build skills, increase knowledge and boost confidence. In 11L, students will be working towards qualifications in English, Maths, Science, ICT, BTEC Sport, BTEC Home Cooking as well as studying towards a GCSE in ART.

Each entry level qualification is available at three sub-levels, Entry 1, Entry 2 and Entry 3 with Entry level 3 being the highest. Students will then move on to Functional Skills Level 1 and Functional Skills Level 2.

Whilst qualifications are important, we feel that learning is so much more than that, therefore in 11L we have many other enrichment activities and experiences for the students to immerse themselves in, such as educational trips, outdoor learning, fundraising events, school residential's, college visits and plenty of opportunities to practise life skills.

In 11L we aim to provide our students with as many opportunities as possible to prepare for adulthood and life after Market Field whatever their chosen pathway.
