The Resilience Curriculum:

R = Real world

E = Engaging and Enriching

S = Skills for Life

I = Inclusion

L = Leadership

I = Independence

E = Encourages Reflection

N = Next steps

C = Challenge

E = Ethics and Empathy

The three foci for the Year 7 Curriculum are:

  • Ready to learn
  • Sense of belonging
  • Meeting high expectations.

At Key Stage 3, as well as the more academic subjects, we offer the creative arts, a variety of technologies and sport, namely:

English, mathematics,

Science, French, humanities (geography, history, religious studies)

Art, computing, dance, drama, expressive arts, food studies, ICT, PE, The Resilience Programme, music.

At Key Stage 4, students take core subjects (maths, English, science, PE) and are offered many rigorous and challenging academic courses plus a range of exceptional vocational courses such as BTECs.

At this stage, four options are available to each student: Art, business studies, creative digital media, dance, drama, food studies, French, geography, German, history, ICT, music, PE, religious studies, resistant materials, triple sciences, photography, computer science. The student will decide which four options they will study.

“The curriculum is broad and balanced. Clear and appropriate pathways are offered at Key Stage 4. The curriculum at Key Stage 3 has a strong focus on building aspirations, self-confidence and improving literacy skills.” – Ofsted
