Our Curriculum



Curiosity – harnessing childrens natural inquisitiveness and love for exploration through an immersive curriculum will create active learners who never stop wanting to learn more.

Hope – building positive mental health, resilience and setting aspirational goals to make a positive impact on the world they live.

Opportunity – creating experiences and wonderful memories developing confident people who bravely seek out their own opportunities to forge their future.

Trust – investing in positive relationships to become respectful, compassionate people ready and prepared to live and make a difference to our world.


Encouraging curiosity in our school community enables pupils to take control of their learning and allows teachers flexibility to be effective facilitators. It opens the way for deep and meaningful questioning, exploration, and evaluation. We instil hope to ensure that our pupils aspire to challenge and aiming high whilst supporting a positive mental health. We ensure that the curriculum provides opportunity for experiences, practice, application, and fun.  Through trusting relationships our pupils become confident, independent, and self-sufficient learners with the skills and experience they need to be responsible citizens.
