Knowledge Rich Curriculum
We are currently developing our Key Stage 3 curriculum as we plan to launch a Knowledge Rich curriculum in September 2022. A knowledge-rich curriculum is designed to develop memory and a student’s ability to recall information. This piece of curriculum development is an exciting time for our school, as we believe that all students are entitled to learn ‘the best that has been thought and said’ (Matthew Arnold). This curriculum development is based on educational research, as well as a number of outstanding schools that have already embarked upon this project.
We want our students to receive the best educational experience so that they leave our school as responsible young people with the key knowledge required to be successful in their future careers and lives. We firmly believe that delivering a knowledge rich curriculum will provide our students with this ambitious curriculum that will develop their life chances.
Further information will follow once the curriculum plan and knowledge statements have been developed for each subject that our students will study.
