Reading Girls' School

Curriculum

  • We offer a broad, balanced, relevant, differentiated and inclusive curriculum to all students which conforms to Librarythe National Curriculum. Developing British values and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) understanding form a key part of our provision. Students are grouped in a variety of ways, according to the needs of each subject.
  • At Key Stage 3, students study a broad range of subjects to ensure that our girls experience a broad curriculum in order for them to make informed subject choices at Key Stage 4.
  • At Key Stage 4, we aim to provide a personalised curriculum with students being encouraged to follow the subjects that offer them the best chance of success. We engage students and parents in decisions regarding their guided choices. 
  • The curriculum offered at Key Stage 4 ensures that there are clear progression routes to enable students to continue their post-16 education and to prepare them for higher education and or the world of work. Our more able students are appropriately stretched and challenged in order that they gain the greatest opportunities of succeeding in an academically demanding curriculum.
  • Support for students with Special Educational Needs, and those for whom English is an additional language, is provided in class and through withdrawal sessions. 
  • Formal assessments of learning are conducted according to our Assessment, Recording and Reporting schedule and targets are shared with students and their parents. Assessments of students' learning are also made more informally and frequently.
