Our curriculum is designed around our core principle that students leave us at 16 years old Fit for Life. To achieve this, we provide extensive curriculum opportunities that allow students to develop into skilled, resilient and considerate individuals.
The curriculum functions on three levels:
- Skills and Knowledge
- Our Community
The skills and knowledge curriculum is delivered through the national curriculum and the GCSE specifications that we offer in KS4. Our aim is to have a broad and balanced curriculum that has no limit on aspiration whilst providing a range of vocational qualifications to support some of our students into post 16 education.
Our communication curriculum is designed to ensure that no student is disadvantaged by low levels of oracy, reading and vocabulary. We actively seek to provide opportunities where students can develop the necessary skills to be confident communicators in a range of contexts.
Our Community curriculum encourages active participation in team building, leadership and volunteering. We provide numerous opportunities that allow students to thrive in this area and genuinely engage with their community both within school and beyond. In Year 7 all students participate in the Young Leaders Award and by Year 9 we encourage all to participate in elements of the Duke of Edinburgh scheme with many completing the full programme.
