Curriculum Overview

Our aim is to offer a broad and balanced curriculum which enables each member of the school community to become the ‘best versions of themselves’. Our curriculum is designed so that all students, regardless of their background or ability, is able to develop the attitudes and qualities which prepares them to

  • achieve the very best academic standards in all subject areas, commensurate with their own ability;

  • utilise the necessary skills which helps prepare them for life beyond school; and

  • live good Christian lives, underpinned by our core values of: Love, Acceptance, Responsibility and Forgiveness.

We take every opportunity to ensure all students make the best progress possible and achieve the highest possible standards in subjects and qualifications. We strive to narrow the gaps in achievement and enable those not achieving age-related expectations to catch up with their peers. Our ALNCo works closely with all departments, in order to support students so that they all have access to the curriculum. The school challenges more able and talented students so that they achieve their full potential and their progress is sustained and enhanced. We make certain that all young people develop the skills and abilities needed for success in life and can apply them in a wide range of contexts.

Teaching groups vary in nature but generally there are mixed ability classes on admission in Year 7. A process of setting, determined by each department, takes place as students move through the school. Some setting takes place in Year 7 with further extensions to setting in Years 8- 11. 

Curriculum Organisation
