Curriculum Vision

God loves us and his desire for us to live well is expressed in and through his Wisdom. The intention of our curriculum is to teach our students to become wise. Wisdom is the acquisition of knowledge, craftsmanship and is expressed through good moral living. It is acquired through diligence in study and through thoughtful reflection. A wise person will be resilient in difficulties. They will seek and value different perspectives and therefore will be tolerant of those that are different to them. They will be emotionally intelligent and will able to see themselves as part of a larger whole.

 

Proverbs 4:6-7
Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you;
    love her, and she will watch over you.
The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom.
    Though it cost all you have, get understanding

 

Broad and balanced

We offer an expertly-delivered, high quality ‘traditional but current’ curriculum, drawing on best practice from independent and state schools nationally.  We support all students to achieve their greatest potential both academically and as creative, caring and responsible future adults.  Our curriculum is broad and balanced, meeting the needs of the full range of our students; developing them intellectually, socially, culturally, spiritually and morally.

Personalised pathways

We have a common core curriculum, differentiated curriculum pathways through KS4, and cross-curricular ICT.  All paths will develop our students’ critical thinking skills and empower them as citizens, employees and individuals.

Students who are able to achieve the English Baccalaureate will follow a pathway that enables them to achieve this but there will always be flexibility to adapt this for individuals with particular talents, gifts or progression routes.

For students where an English Baccalaureate or equivalent pathway is an unrealistic aspiration we will provide an alternative range of courses and options, enabling every student to gain a sense of self-worth and achievement.
