Curriculum Overview

We believe that providing a broad, rich and deep range of learning experiences is essential for the development of the young people who study with us. A well-planned, personalised curriculum, delivered through excellent teaching, will provide our students the opportunities to Excel, Exceed and Explore in response to the challenges of a rapidly developing world.


Scope

We define the curriculum as:

  • the intent behind the plans for teaching and learning
  • the body of knowledge and understanding which we wish for students to develop
  • the learning skills and approaches which we wish for students to develop
  • the wider curriculum, including enrichment and extra-curricular activities facilitated by school.

Beliefs and ethos

We believe that a well-designed curriculum is essential for tackling educational disadvantage. Our rationale is founded on the following ten principles.

  • The curriculum must assist all students in securing high-quality qualifications that will best prepare them for their future education, employment and training.
  • All students must study a personalised curriculum which is wide-ranging, balanced and rigorous.
  • The curriculum must be designed around effective understanding of the transition from primary to secondary education and the subsequent transition into further and higher education.
  • The curriculum must be engaging; learning is fun and it must be rewarding for all.
  • The foundation of all learning is knowledge, so we plan and deliver a knowledge-rich curriculum.
  • Learning is ‘sticky’ and generative; the more students learn, the more they can learn in the future.
  • Core skills are to be mastered within and across all subjects, so the development of skills is also a keen focus of our planning.
  • Enrichment, both within the curriculum and beyond, is essential in bringing learning to life, and so must be explicitly planned.
  • Employability and preparedness for work must be incorporated into curriculum planning.
  • The curriculum must help students to develop spiritually, morally, culturally and socially.
