  • A core of essential knowledge in the key subject disciplines
  • Freedom for teachers to use professionalism and expertise

Running through all of our curriculum, including the pastoral curriculum, are strands of Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural education (SMSC) which cover themes such as:

  • Making and maintaining positive relationships
  • Staying safe and healthy (including Sex and Relationships Education and cyber-safety)
  • Respect of self and others
  • Equality and inclusion – especially tolerance, respect and understanding of people from protected groups, including those with different faiths and beliefs
  • British values eg: rights and responsibilities, democracy and the rule of law

We aim to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum with a range of pathways that provide a stimulating and demanding education for students of all abilities.
