At Coal Clough Academy, we offer an ambitious vocational curriculum that is designed to give all learners the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. We provide a wide range of vocational opportunities to ensure our pupils are able to reach their aspirations and gain access to further education and rewarding employment when they leave us.

We pride ourselves on providing vocational courses which lead to a passionate understanding of, and commitment to, the joy of technical accomplishment. The large range of vocational subjects that can be studied here at Coal Clough Academy are designed to provide opportunities for all pupils to experience a more ‘hands-on’ approach to their learning and overcome any barriers to learning that they may have experienced in their previous schools. It can give those who learn in different ways a chance to flourish and perform well, as the type of teaching is far more social, interactive, and visual.

Our pupils are able to experience a vocational curriculum that is carefully planned and sequenced in order for them to develop their skills and knowledge in the vocational subjects they study. It is through this practical approach that we are able to support pupils to improve their motivation, self-confidence and engagement with education.
