Through our Character and Academics approach to curriculum design, we express our belief that education is as much about developing young people’s character strengths and virtues as it is about developing their academic ability.
This section of the website introduces the subjects that make up our curriculum. Across these pages you can read about the how we consider the sequencing of skills and knowledge within each subject area, at each stage of education, and how these build toward agreed end points. You can read about how each subject department plays their part in promoting the key skills of numeracy and literacy, and ensures that opportunities for character development are not missed. You can access these pages by clicking on the subject links on the menu to the left.
