We believe in developing a curriculum which not only allows flexibility of approach that meets the needs of each child, but also ensures that no‐one gets left behind. We pride ourselves on having a curriculum which responds to the local community and the demands of the 21st century.

To ensure the above is achieved by all students the Learning Support Team intervenes to identify barriers and enable students to overcome them. Stimulating opportunities are provided to extend everyone.

Most classes are set by ability to ensure that learning experiences match each individual student’s ability. Lesson activity needs to be accessible and challenging. We also ensure that enterprise education is embedded within student learning based on OFSTED recommendations.

  • At Key Stage Three (Years 7 – 9) the curriculum is a broad experience, building on Primary School experiences. It is designed following National Curriculum requirements
  • At Key Stage Four (Years 10 – 11) the curriculum allows students to select courses with a view to their future needs. Students are expected to follow English, Maths and Science and then select from a range of academic and vocational courses at the right level for their ability
  • Post 16 Students will have a broad and inspirational range of subject choices either A-Level or Vocational

We ensure that all students pursue courses that will create clear pathways into further education, university, apprenticeships and more.
