Our curriculum is based on our belief that school should be a safe and wonderful place where children want to be: where learning happens both within and outside of the classroom. Children will be encouraged to enjoy life whilst at school and discover their fascinations. Creative technology combines the skills and knowledge of art and technology, in so doing we will be able to achieve more in a shorter amount of time. Personalised learning will provide the opportunity to focus on literacy and numeracy aimed specifically at the individual.
We want all of our children to reach their full potential in body, mind, heart and spirit and to be prepared for life’s journey.
Whatever their background they will learn how to shape their own futures and develop their unique capacities and skills rooted in their own interests. They will learn the literacy and numeracy skills needed for life and necessary to progress in their education. They will be encouraged to be curious and use thinking skills to innovate, be creative and problem solve. They will develop their understanding of employment and entrepreneurship.
At Key Stage 2 we follow the Inspire curriculum providing an all through curriculum with King's Court First School. The Inspire curriculum is based around themes which the students enjoy and find helpful as they move through the different subjects.
A change from previous years, Years 5,6 and 7 have a blended curriculum which means students are taught English, History and Geography by one teacher, Science and PE by one teacher and art and technology are combined and taught by one teacher. Our students tell us that they enjoy getting to know their teachers and having their teachers understand them and their learning needs better.
In Year 8 we are actively preparing them for the next stage in their education and they are taught by subject specialists.
