Curriculum Aims

The aim of our curriculum is to give students the confidence to embrace all future opportunities and overcome every potential barrier they may face in life.

At the heart of this is our ACE Curriculum, shown in the graphic below:

An ACE Curriculum


  • Ambitious

  • Fundamental British Values

We want to prepare our students to excel in the modern world, to empower them to become caring citizens and resilient learners who achieve excellence. Our aim is to give every young person the best possible start in life, whatever their background or starting point. We want students to leave our school as confident learners, readers and communicators in preparation for life beyond the classroom.
