We work in partnership with our neighbouring specialist academy, Monk’s Walk, and we are part of the Welwyn Garden City 16 to 19 Consortium.
All students take part in PE lessons with their mainstream year group at Monk’s Walk School. This allows students to participate in team sports and activities, and provides opportunities for social integration.
There are opportunities for supported integration on a part-time basis, in a variety of subjects. These include Art and Drama in Key Stage 3. Older students are able to choose one or two subjects in Monk’s Walk School from a wide selection of courses.
Our unique partnership enables us to respond flexibly and effectively to meet the needs of all our students. They have the advantage of being included into a mainstream setting while still having the specialist support which we can offer.
A legal agreement between the two schools formalises the partnership and enables Knightsfield School to access some facilities, such as PE, the drama studio, library and dining hall at Monk’s Walk School.
