Our curriculum intent
Our curriculum sits at the heart of everything we do. We have developed a curriculum intent statement that enshrines what our curriculum means to us, and its aim.
Our aim is to develop students who have limitless aspirations and are equipped to be successful in any path they choose. To that end, we offer a broad, balanced curriculum that ensures students master the relevant knowledge, concepts and skills of a wide range of disciplines, whilst fostering a life-long love of learning. We know our students are curious and questioning and our curriculum provides them with the opportunity to deepen their understanding of issues at a local, national and global level and address them with confidence. Our aim is to ensure all students go beyond simply tolerating our differences to celebrating them.
Ours is a responsive and challenging curriculum with sufficient flexibility to meet the needs of all of our students and ensure they are given the opportunity to fulfil their potential. Students can expect to receive feedback which enables them to grow, develop resilience and reach the highest standards. They can expect to be challenged and encouraged to be independent and take risks in their learning. Enrichment opportunities are built into our curriculum to allow our students to experience and participate in a broad range of cultural pursuits, engendering in them an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.
