Our Curriculum Vision and Aims

Enabling students to achieve academic excellence with wider social awareness and responsibilities

Our Curriculum Vision

At Maidstone Grammar School for Girls, our curriculum vision is to enable students to achieve academic excellence with wider social awareness and responsibilities in a caring, forward thinking and supportive environment.

Our Curriculum Philosophy

Our curriculum philosophy is underpinned by a broad set of common values and purposes. There are:

  • encouraging in students a deeper knowledge and understanding of key ideas and concepts through a thinking based approach to learning

  • giving sufficient time to each Key Stage so that opportunities are made available for significant enrichment and extension to ensure that all students are intellectually challenged and develop as independent learners and thinkers

  • providing flexibility in curriculum design and subject choice so that students are, wherever practicable, able to personalise their learning with regard to their ability and interests whilst retaining breadth in their studies

  • ensuring that learning and teaching is of the highest quality and utilises technology to enhance this where possible

  • developing Thinking Skills and a positive Mindset in all students to ensure they are able to meet the increasingly challenging nature of academic and career demands.

Enquiry, enrichment and extension form the basis of our ‘Curriculum and 6th Form Extra’ programmes, both in timetabled lessons and extra-curricular activities.
