Curriculum overview

Curriculum Overview

Our Curriculum supports our motto: Aspire, Achieve, Enjoy. A culture of high expectations for all which cultivates a love of learning and ambition for success. We create and empower successful lifelong learners who believe they can achieve, whilst building their cultural capital; inspiring and enabling them to make a lasting and positive contribution to future societies worldwide.


KS 4 Revision guides and workbook information 

The Curriculum Intent has been developed based on educational research to ensure the composite end points are broken down into small components. The meticulous sequencing of every component builds appropriately on what has been learned before including in Key Stage 2. This is crucial so students are able to develop long term learning. This is constantly reviewed to meet the needs of every learner.

Our curriculum is implemented so students are supported and encouraged to grow in confidence and self-belief through Quality First teaching based on Rosenshine`s Principles of Instruction. If students are to become leaders of their own learning they must keep an open mind, enjoy hard work, and be curious about the world in which they live. Students will be stretched in their lessons to take risks, take on new challenges and develop creativity. They will achieve their aspirations through high standards of teaching, deep learning and leadership. 

Our Master Learner Programme aims to inspire student ambition through the curriculum, inside and outside of the classroom and guide their transition to further study. Our highly skilled and knowledgeable staff provide enrichment experiences and opportunities to ensure students thrive. High challenge, personalised support coupled with an ambitious supra curriculum for the highest achievers ensures personal growth and accelerated learning. Opportunities include A Level Maths tutoring with Hampton Boys, The Brilliant Club Scholars’ Programme, Author masterclasses, Academic scholarships.

Strategic Intent

To develop a curriculum which:

  • Is expertly designed and sequenced which will enable students to embrace opportunities beyond the curriculum to develop their love of learning

  • Is underpinned by our belief in the limitless potential of every student

  • Provides an aspirational culture with personal careers guidance to enable students to make ambitious post-16 choices.

Curriculum Implementation

  • Curriculum training is at the heart of the Continued Professional Development programme
  • The implementation of our challenging curriculum is centred around Rosenshine`s Principles of Instruction which is used to support Quality First Teaching
  • Information is embedded into long term memory through a variety of retrieval practice activities including regular low stakes testing, the opportunity to revisit and build upon prior learning, and carefully sequenced activities using principles of interweaving, interleaving and mixed practice.
  • Curriculum leaders are experts in their subject areas and work together so strong links are formed cross – curricular throughout the school
  • Ensure that assessment points are well planned with a high priority on low stakes testing.
  • Cold Calling and Deep Questioning are key features in lessons
  • Extra-Curricular opportunities are at the heart of the curriculum.

Curriculum Impact

  • Enjoyment of the expertly planned curriculum will promote achievement, confidence and outstanding behaviour for learning
  • Our curriculum will enable students to become good citizens and demonstrate an appreciation for each other, the school community and the world.
  • The wider enrichment and extra-curricular programme will have supported the development of every student, giving them the cultural capital to be successful in the next stage of their education and career development
  • Subject leaders make intelligent use of assessment to inform curriculum design
  • Aspirations will have been raised so every student leaves Twickenham School knowing that they can be successful in whatever they want to achieve in life
