Curriculum

Our curriculum supports and challenge learners to be:

• successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve
• confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives; by cementing their sense of identity, this in turn enables them engage in positive relationships and nurture their own talents.
• responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society, and show respect and tolerance to others

Our emphasis in on providing a broad and balanced curriculum with a clear continuum of development. It is focused on subject disciplines, delivered by subject specialists, but also on increased autonomy, the development of interest and skills and the promotion of independent learning. We believe in equality of opportunity and also in the development of key aptitudes:

Aptitudes for learning – e.g. reasoning, creativity and positive motivation

Aptitudes for managing information – e.g. research and reflection

Aptitudes for relating to people – e.g. leadership, teamwork, communication, emotional intelligence and stress management

Aptitudes for managing situations – e.g. time management, coping with change, risk taking, feelings and reactions and creative thinking
