Our curriculum vision

Our curriculum is guided by three key principles:

  • All young people are entitled to an exceptional education, regardless of their background.
  • We have a responsibility to prepare students exceptionally well for their continuing education and future careers.
  • We believe that we can empower our students by ensuring they are knowledgeable about the world around them.

Knowledge and expertise

Through our curriculum, students:

  • Acquire knowledge and expertise.
  • Read widely, including texts by important writers and thinkers. 
  • Learn about the world around them and its history.
  • Study the context of their learning.
  • Learn specialist subject terminology and how to use vocabulary appropriately.

Our curriculum

  • Academic rigour - Traditional at its heart, but also innovative, providing academic rigour, but also ensuring our students gain the knowledge and expertise they will need to be successful in the future.
  • Inspiring – Lessons are stimulating and engaging and wider experiences, such as trips and events, develop a love of learning. We create memorable experiences.
  • Scholarship – Students are encouraged to develop independent learning skills and value learning and the acquisition of knowledge.
  • Challenge for all – We have high expectations of all students and ensure that lessons are designed to provide challenge for all.
