Our curriculum focuses on three key outcomes for all students:
Every student in the school, regardless of age or ability gets one hour of English teaching per day and an hour of mathematics each day. Achievement in these subjects is the most important of all subjects when students leave school. If students are behind in these subjects we will give them extra time and support to catch up and keep up.
To be successful at school, in higher education and in the workplace, well honed literacy skills are vital. All students follow a targeted literacy programme every day focused on reading, writing, handwriting, speaking and listening skills to support achievement in all subject areas.
Our school day is longer than most schools. In a typical week, our students get around five hours more teaching than average which helps to ensure at least two hours teaching in each subject. This allows us to ensure academic excellence in a broad range of subjects and to develop an extracurricular programme which allows students to develop their wider personal, social, sporting and musical skills.
To dedicate time in our curriculum to the qualities and skills needed to be successful at university and in the workplace we have six days per year specifically dedicated to raising awareness around careers and personal development.
