(Staff survey October 2019)

 

  • We offer a broad, balanced, relevant, differentiated and inclusive curriculum to all students which conforms to the 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. 
  • Formal assessments of learning are conducted according to our Assessment, Recording and Reporting schedule.
