Curriculum Ambition

We aim to deliver a curriculum which fulfils the shared vision of The Two Counties Trust to raise educational standards and better the life chances of all our students. The curriculum places the students at the heart of curriculum planning. It is broad and balanced, promoting all subjects and giving all students an opportunity to find and nurture their passion. It is designed to support a culture developing the required academic and personal skills which will enable our students to be equipped to deal with whatever challenges our rapidly changing world may hold for them in the future.

Curriculum Intent
  • Meets the individual needs of students, raises aspirations of all students and enables them to widen horizons and maximise their potential.
  • Provides exciting opportunities for the intellectual, physical, social, emotional, economic, cultural and creative development of every student.
  • Promotes the moral development of all students.
  • Is broad and balanced where all subjects are valued and where all students are equipped with a breadth of knowledge and skills in all areas of the curriculum. Students with SEND experience an equally ambitious curriculum but provision is made for extra intervention in literacy, numeracy or social skills if needed.
  • Ensures continuity and progression between the key stages through providing clear and relevant pathways for learning using assessment intelligently to inform learning, and not solely as a tool for summative judgement.
  • Demonstrates through its implementation that it recognises how students learn, retain concepts and apply them to different situations.
  • Provides flexibility to respond to the developing needs and interests of students and also responds to the changes in society, technology and patterns of employment.
  • Recognises the importance of both formal and informal taught curriculum within the school’s timetabled programme and that which takes place out of normal lesson time or the school day.
  • Recognises the importance of numeracy, language and literacy and promotes them through the formal and informal curriculum.
  • Provides high quality Careers Education and Guidance thus ensuring that all students are prepared for their next steps at each stage of transition and for future employability.
