The Curriculum & Our Learners

Our curriculum structure provides learners with:

  • equality of access
  • an appropriate and challenging curriculum related to their needs
  • a broad and balanced curriculum which builds upon prior learning by giving students significant experience of activities and methodologies that develop key skills, in particular, thinking skills and attributes, personal learning themes, knowledge, understanding and attitudes
  • a coherent curriculum which has consistent and complementary approaches to learning and teaching, allows learners to see how different parts of the curriculum support and complement each other and how acquired skills and knowledge can be applied across a wide range of contexts and situations
  • continuity and progression whereby learning takes account of previous experience, attainment and achievement, learners have challenging but attainable targets and learners have opportunity to follow a course of study throughout their learning career at school at an appropriate level using materials, resources and methodology appropriate to levels of maturity.
