All students study at least to GCSE level. The school curriculum builds methodically on the foundations laid in primary school. It is coherently sequenced to provide all students with the opportunity to progress to the next stage of their education, be it academic, professional or vocational.
The curriculum is made ‘desirably difficult’ for all students. Every individual receives the right combination of support and challenge to achieve their personal best, irrespective of background or personal circumstance. The school makes generous provision for a range of enrichment activities through which students further develop the individual interests and aptitudes that allow them to flourish.
The curriculum explicitly encourages students to have confidence in themselves, care for each other and their environment, be curious about the world and have the courage and creativity to change it for the better.
All students will have the opportunity to extend their studies by attending Enrichment classes which will be on offer every week, some of which will be in partnership with our sibling school, The Charter School North Dulwich. Students who learn most quickly will be given additional opportunities to study enriching subjects such as Mandarin or Photography. Students needing help with literacy, numeracy, or English as a primary language for learning will receive additional support. Some of this support will be offered in lessons, and some will take place after school.
Every student is expected to participate actively in the extra-curricular life of the school and will have the opportunity to choose from a range of activities designed to build character, develop wider interests and acquire life skills. Students will receive a copy of the Enrichment Programme at the beginning of each term and will be asked to choose two enrichment activities per week. Clubs and activities will take place at lunchtime and after school.
