Our curriculum has been designed to;

  • Be ambitious for our pupils.
  • Recognise children’s prior learning
  • Provide first hand experiences
  • Impart powerful knowledge
  • Build resilience
  • Become creative, critical thinkers

The curriculum is at the heart of all we do. 


We aim to develop happy and confident individuals with a secure foundation in learning that will last throughout their lives. We believe that it is important that our pupils have an enriched learning experience. Therefore we place great emphasis on providing opportunities for our pupils that they might not otherwise have.

Through educating the 'whole child' we develop the uniqueness and talents of all of our pupils that is rooted in our Catholic faith.
