Curriculum is the heart of school direction and develops elements such as our learning dispositions to ensure we meet our students needs and they make the progress they should. After attaining our first overall Outstanding judgement last year these are some of the comments inspectors made about our curriculum offering:
- The curriculum was exciting and inspirational. Opportunities for creativity and innovation were enhanced through competitions. Older students designed and ran enterprise projects. The wide range of extra- curricular activities enabled students to follow their interests. Students flourished in the rich learning environment and developed into mature and thoughtful young citizens.
- The curriculum was very effective in promoting the school's core values, and it developed learners who were creative, aspirational, reflective and effective communicators. There was a strong emphasis on independent enquiry and problem solving. The Foundation Stage curriculum was based on learning through play principles.
- The curriculum was very well planned to enable students' academic and life skills to be systematically built on year-by-year. Students were very well supported as they moved to the next stage of their education in the school and beyond. The curriculum was carefully adapted to meet the needs of all students.
- Students were able to make independent choices in their learning to fulfill their interests and aspirations.
