Curriculum

IMG_0116Offering a total curriculum

Our work is cohesive, incremental and focused on both preparation for  school and preparation for life. Our Curriculum offers both academic rigour and creativity (that these two things are not mutually exclusive is at the heart of its ethos) and prepares our learners fully whilst also delivering incredibly important cross-curricular learning skills and qualities for life with a greater emphasis on applying and communicating knowledge.

At SHC we offer a curriculum that meets the needs of learners in years 6 to 11.Subjects offered include English, Mathematics, Science, PE, ICT, Arts and Music , Personal & Social Education and Home Cooking.

Learners in years 10 and 11 have access to alternative provision with a range of providers. This enables each learner to follow a vocational pathway for their future needs. All pupils will be given the opportunity to gain English and mathematics GCSE or equivalent before leaving  school.

Learners study:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • French
  • Humanities (History, Geography & PSE)
  • The Arts (Art, Drama, Music & Dance)
