Curriculum

Our broad and balanced curriculum seeks to maximise the achievement of all our students. It meets the requirements of the revised National Curriculum and is also tailored to the specific needs, interests and aspirations of our students.

Our curriculum contributes to the spiritual, social, moral and cultural development of students. This is achieved through the caught curriculum and through the programme of enrichment activities which help to deliver key aspects of personal, social and health education, as well as citizenship. The curriculum provision is also supported by a strong commitment to impartial careers information, advice and guidance.
