Our school badge has always contained the heraldic symbol for a tower, representing solidity, strength and protection. Our Curriculum Philosophy reflects these attributes by providing students with a firm base of knowledge from which they can thrive and flourish in their academic studies.
The acquisition of relevant, thought-provoking and detailed knowledge is central to our curriculum…… so that students can undertake higher levels of study and employment with a sound educational, social, moral and cultural foundation.
Development of skills
This broad depth of knowledge will allow students to develop the core skills that they require in order to achieve outstanding outcomes.
Teacher as the expert
We recognise the central role played by teachers in delivering our curriculum, and we view the ‘teacher as the expert’ in every classroom. They are required to work together within and across departments in order to embed and transfer the knowledge, skills and ethos that we value as a learning community. This is an ongoing process of refinement and ‘growth’, and we understand that our curriculum will build upon prior learning, adapt and change in order to meet the needs of our school. We will take an evidence based approach to all curriculum decisions.
