Quality of Education


Our Vision Statement

Teaching & Learning

Our curriculum aims to provide an education which enriches students’ ambitions and love of learning and equips them with the skills, knowledge and cultural capital they need to access aspirational post–16 pathways and the responsibilities and experiences of later life. Our curriculum design includes seven key principles which operate in synergy.


Promotes intellectual, moral, spiritual, aesthetic, creative, emotional and physical development equally.


Seeks to identify and teach the most important knowledge/skills within a subject.


Interleaving focuses on progression by weaving different topics together, switched between and revisited at intervals throughout the year. Spiral focuses on progression by building knowledge each time. Combined with retrieved practise to give a truly powerful and balanced learning environment.


Is purposely structured and sequenced. It links knowledge and skills between different subjects and other learning experiences.


Carefully matches the level of challenge to what students’ are able to do cognitively, physically and emotionally at a certain age.


Is cognitively demanding and challenging. It seeks to develop a deep understanding of subject knowledge and skills with the ability to apply these to solve complex problems.


Seeks to connect the knowledge and skills so students’ can understand the purpose of their learning. They can see the value of what they are learning and its relevance to their lives, present and future.
