The curriculum as a whole is an expression of our belief that the world is God's creation and the arena of His continuing activity.
In its specifics the curriculum is based upon sound educational theory and practice and, where appropriate, follows The New National Curriculum. The curriculum also evaluates and responds critically to current educational trends.
We aim to direct students to an understanding of the various orders of God’s creation through the study of the aesthetic and creative, the ethical, the linguistic, the mathematical, the physical, the scientific, the social and the spiritual.
Expressed in this way the curriculum reflects our belief that the spiritual nature of human beings pervades the spiritual, intellectual, social and physical aspects of being and that all aspects are integrated. This holistic view also points to the need to incorporate studies directed at understanding and appreciating of our whole selves and to developing vocational skills. The curriculum is therefore planned to meet needs in all these areas.
Collectively the curriculum occupies a substantial part of student’s time at school; It provides for all students a balanced, comprehensive and sound education. At the same time the curriculum is flexible enough to respond to individual strengths, interests and needs through extension activities.
Individual programmes are built up year by year, extending into new areas after having suitably revisited previously covered material. These vertical programmes are devised to ensure both continuity and connections with other programmes, provide students with a meaningful holistic perspective of their education and lay the foundations for life-long learning.
