Curriculum

Our curriculum is wide ranging, designed to meet the needs of everyone’s abilities, interests and aspirations for the future. Our pupils learn to think for themselves and we encourage them to become independent learners who ask good questions, think creatively, and solve problems with confidence. By the time our pupils leave school, we want them to be self-disciplined and focused young people who are totally determined to succeed in whatever career they choose to pursue.

We review annually and update our curriculum in order to maintain the highest possible academic standards and to prevent our pupils from being disadvantaged, thus ensuring that every pupil reaches their full potential. We ensure pupils are equipped to become active participants in society and responsible contributors to it, capable of achieving as much independence as possible. We also ensure that the education we offer ensures progression to Sixth Form Colleges and into Higher Education and employment.

We set our pupils challenging targets for continual improvement and we make sure that they make the most of their opportunities in each year. We expect total support and commitment from parents, and work in close partnership with them to ensure that all our young people find the success they deserve.

Our teachers work hard to find new ways to make their subjects more exciting while relevant field trips and study visits take lessons out of the classroom at every opportunity across the whole curriculum. Wide ranging extra-curricular activities also provide new ways to learn and have fun.
