Students who leave the school at the age of 18 or 19 will be active citizens ready to face the challenges of a 21st century society which is characterised by change. Having followed an exciting and rigorous curriculum they will be innovative, creative leaders with the knowledge and skills to succeed.
It is our aim that every child will achieve 5 A*-C grades including English and Maths. Students will work towards a range of qualifications including traditional academic and high quality vocational qualifications supported by the International Baccalaureate Career Related Certificate (IBCC). All students will take part in regular additional enrichment activities to complement their learning.
The curriculum will include GCSEs in English and English Literature, Mathematics and Sciences as well as a range of subjects supported by the expertise available across the thirteen secondary schools. The ICT curriculum will include the opportunity to learn the computing skills required in order to develop new technologies as well as expertise in information literacy and the use of state-of- the-art technologies.
The development of high level literacy, numeracy, creative and problem solving skills will be a priority throughout every student’s time at the school. The attainment and achievement of every student will be the best that it can be as a result of our planning the curriculum around their individual learning needs.
We aim to be an International Thinking School highlighting the importance we attach to enabling our students and staff to understand and engage in effective thinking and learning.
