The curriculum at TMTS reflects our mission statement, Unlocking Potential, Everyone’s Future Counts. The curriculum is individualised, creative, and flexible, allowing for the needs of all students to be met. It aims to promote the social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of the pupils as well as their intellectual, communication and physical development.

Our broad and balanced curriculum is blended with opportunities for pupils to develop functional skills, independence skills, skills for life & work, and to explore and be a part of their local community. Our curriculum is a pathway to further studies and training at The Michael Tippett College.
