Curriculum & Reporting

Therfield Curriculum Overview – 2018-19

Intent:

Therfield implements a curriculum model based on:

  • a broad and balanced curriculum; one which ensures students follow a wide range of subjects – from Sciences, Arts, Humanities, and Languages – for as long as possible,
  • a curriculum which keeps students options open and is led by student choice
  • a wider-curriculum which supports students’ personal development.
  • a curriculum that incorporates a range of qualification routes and is, where appropriate, supported by technical or vocational courses.

More specific details about the subject content taught in the different key stages can be found in the documents below or by contacting relevant class teachers and/or Subject Leaders.
