Curriculum: Curriculum Overview

Our curriculum is broad and varied; it follows the National Curriculum and allows for flexibility to meet the needs of all students in all year groups.

The aim of our curriculum is to ensure that all students grow in confidence and experience academic success, enabling them then to succeed at college and university beyond.

Within this broad framework, we focus on developing key learning skills across all subject areas, which we call the 'Personal Learning and Thinking Skills' framework.  These skills include:

  • Independent enquiry
  • Creative thinking 
  • Team work
  • Reflective learning 
  • Self-managing 
  • Effective participation
Mr Mike Rabey, Deputy Headteacher, is our overall lead for curriculum.
