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.
