In Secondary we follow a curriculum based upon the English National Curriculum, so that our students are fully prepared for the external exams in Key Stage Four and Five. We ensure that we embody the best elements of the curriculum, whilst tailoring it to fit the needs of our students and their learning needs.

The curriculum we offer has depth, rigour and promotes the values that we espouse as a school in our Learner Profile: determination, curiosity, independence, risk-taking, kindness, the ability to work in a team, positivity and a reflective nature.

Following Year 6, students transition to the Secondary School. Although we are housed on the same campus as Primary, we recognise that a carefully managed transition is absolutely vital to our students’ success. A transition day takes place in Semester Three of Year 6 to allow students to gain a taster of what a typical secondary school day is like.

Our school day begins with either an assembly or pastoral tutor time. Assemblies are run by teachers and students throughout the year, and are times to celebrate the success of our students as well as guiding them throughout their learning journey.

Curriculum – Years 7-9

In Key Stage Three, learning and teaching focuses on inquiry-based learning, using the flipped classroom when appropriate.
