Students often exceed their own expectations over time due to support which takes account of each individual's strengths and needs.ISI Inspection 2019
Our curriculum is truly unique, made up of our Core Curriculum which is delivered mostly throughout the mornings in short 45 minute lessons, complemented by our Expansive Curriculum, which is delivered in longer afternoon sessions.
Our Core Curriculum is delivered in shorter, more frequent 45 minute lessons throughout the day, and mostly during the mornings when young people are more receptive to academic study. Our maximum class size is 16 which helps ensure that no child is left behind and every child is able to fully access and engage in learning.

All students in Years 7-9 will experience all the above pathways in both their Core Curriculum and Expansive Curriculum lessons. The Expansive Curriculum pathways are delivered in extended afternoon sessions, when our students like to be active and engaged in challenges and project-based learning.
