Our aim is to provide an excellent education for all of our students through a strong curriculum covering the core knowledge and key skills that prepares them for success in education and later in life. We want to develop our students’ ability to think critically, we want them to be able to work with others and to be able to contribute positively as global citizens.
Our school curriculum statement is founded on these key principles:
- Inclusivity: We believe that all our students have the right to learn and to succeed.
- Curiosity: We want all our students to be curious and inquisitive in their approach to learning.
- Global learners: We want our students to engage with their local environment and to be interested in national and international affairs.
Reading is an important part of the curriculum and we encourage all students to be a member of the local library in order to extend their selection. To help develop both their reading and writing skills, we recommend that all Key Stage 3 students read a range of fiction and non-fiction texts across the year.
We believe that all students should have the opportunity to access a broad range of the arts both within and outside of the classroom.
We will expose all students to a breadth of creative cultural topics and through these, students will become critical thinkers, independent problem solvers and confident explorers of the arts.
Students will be well rounded member of a global society understanding their social, mental, spiritual and emotional well being and their place of others within modern society.
