Curriculum Overview

Christ's School curriculum is designed to cover a wide range of subjects and to encourage independent learning. The curriculum is broad and balanced to enable every student to develop their academic strengths and personal talents. Students are encourage to choose subjects giving a broad depth of curriculum. Full details of our curriculum policy can be found in the Curriculum Statement.


Literacy across the Curriculum

The increasing pressure on students to make specific levels of progress and achieve particular grades at GCSE can leave both students, parents and teachers feeling overwhelmed.

Alongside the existing pressures, there are now additional SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) requirements and marks in every GCSE exam.

Literacy is a national Government priority and also a priority for Christ’s School.

The link between home and school is vital in order for you/ your child to succeed, whether this is through pastoral or academic support. Good literacy skills link to both happiness and achievement.

We have produced a literacy handbook so that you can support your studies/ your child’s learning at home.


YEAR 11 EXTENDED DAY PROGRAMME

Over the past two years we have successfully run a Year 11 extended day.  This programme has directly led to a significant increase in numbers of A*/A grades, and a significant increase in the levels of progress being achieved in English, Maths and Science, when at the start of the year some students had looked less likely to achieve their target grade.
