Curriculum Aims

• Provide equal opportunities for all students regardless of gender, aptitude, cultural, ethnic or religious background.
• Have students at its heart, putting their interests above those of the institution.
• Prepare all students for a successful adult and working life in a 21st century global society.
• Value vocational and academic routes equally.
• Nurture the talents of all and celebrate success.
• Work with partner schools in the primary sector and Post-16 to ease transition and secure the broadest possible curriculum offer.
• Involve the community and parents/carers.
• Prepare students for further study, the world of work and to become active citizens.
• Develop positive personal and social values.
• Provide a variety of activities which bring about effective learning, provide appropriate challenges and lead to achievement for all.
• Provide continuity and progression from the point of transfer to the time of leaving school.

Curriculum Structure

• The curriculum is planned in a coherent manner ensuring it meets legal requirements, including those of the National Curriculum, and embraces cross-curricular themes including: careers information and guidance (CIAG); personal, social, health and economic education (PSHEE); science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM); sex and relationships education (SRE); citizenship and crosscurricular skills, in particular those of literacy, numeracy and ICT. Modern British Values (MBV) are delivered throughout the curriculum and through our PROUD Learning days.
• We have audited our provision of the wider curriculum and where there is not full curriculum coverage, we ensure that these needs are met through REAL days, enrichment opportunities and cross-curricula delivery.
• The development of students’ personal and social skills, and their spiritual and cultural development are addressed specifically through the PSHEE programme and school assemblies, as well as permeating the whole curriculum, both formal and hidden.
• The importance of developing ICT, literacy and numeracy, is recognised by the allocation of additional lessons at KS3 for students with prior attainment in English and mathematics below national expectations and a continuing emphasis on the further development of these skills across the whole curriculum.
• The range of subjects on offer in the school at Key Stage 3 and 4, and the qualifications they currently lead to, is shown in the table at the bottom of this webpage.
