Curriculum Aims:

  • Throughout the curriculum students engage with a diverse range of texts from different eras and cultures which function as a springboard for learning more about society, history and identity, enhancing their empathy and understanding of both morality and the world around them.

  • The seven-year curriculum and its implementation is engaging, enriching and challenging with a focus on knowledge-rich learning in order to enable academic success but also to equip all pupils with an extensive knowledge and love of Literature.

  • Spiral curriculum designed to enable ALL pupils to achieve their potential and to become analytical, empathetic, critical thinkers who express ideas with confidence and articulation to prepare them for their lives beyond GHS.
