Curriculum

We implement a mix of vocational and academic learning, themed across sports, the arts and enterprise and delivered within a broad and balanced curriculum. Our curriculum ensures our students acquire strong basic skills in literacy and numeracy, build conceptual knowledge and develop personal, social and learning skills. It is built on a sure foundation in Key Stage 3 where we ensure that, as far as possible, all students read to their chronological age as we recognise this is the key to success in vocational and academic curriculum at Key Stage 4.

Our aim is to ensure that our students leave with the skills they will need to make a positive contribution as adults and, therefore, our approach is individualised and tailored to individual levels of development and ambition. We celebrate the successes and ambitions of each young person not only through nationally recognised awards, but also through the achievement of non-traditional awards, including professional certification in sport, the arts and/or enterprise.

See our Free School Brochure.
