Curriculum

 "An excellent environment for my Daughter to thrive under both academically and socially". (Parent Quote).

In September 2012 Joseph Paxton Campus introduced a full time timetable. This includes five 50 minute lessons every day for students in Years 7 - 10 and one hour enrichment on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Students in Year 11 have six 50 minute lessons on two days a week and five 50 minute lessons on the other three days, with the option to attend enrichment sessions on other days. This has allowed greater flexibility for students, both in terms of the hours they are attending and in the subjects they are able to study. This was a massive departure from the previous curriculum which allowed students in Key stage 3 to attend during the morning and pupils in Key Stage 4 to attend in the afternoon. Full time provision has had a positive impact on students and their access to education. It has extended learning opportunities, as we have been able to broaden both the subjects offered and content that can be taught. This has given greater opportunity for learning and achievement. More accredited courses in Year 11 means that students are well placed in applying for post-16 courses. 

 

Ofsted 2014: 'The curriculum has been revised, adapted and successfully meets the needs of all the students'.

'The curriculum is stimulating an interesting and has recently been extended to provide greater opportunities in music, science and drama'.
