At Corpus Christi we aim to develop the learning of the whole child, creating opportunities for students to grow and achieve through both engagement and challenge. We encourage our students to be independent and creative thinkers, participating effectively through both team-work and self-management, and developing the skills to analyse and reflect.
At the core of our curriculum planning is a personalised, flexible and inclusive learning programme. Literacy and numeracy are key priorities and there is the opportunity to access accelerated learning strategies, where required, at both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. Our 21st century learning environment, which includes state of the art ICT facilities, allows our priorities to be embedded across the curriculum. Our Virtual Learning Environment provides access to resources the students need to challenge expectations and extend their knowledge.
At Key Stage 3 we offer a broad, balanced and motivating curriculum which includes: Religious Education, English, Mathematics, Science, Modern Foreign Languages, History, Geography, ICT, Music, Drama, Art & Design, Physical Education and Design & Technology. Towards the end of Key Stage 3, students are inducted into a rigorous option process where they are guided to make judgements about their future learning, enabling smooth transition to the academic rigours of Key Stage 4.
In Key Stage 4 learning pathways are tailored to personalise each pupil’s education. Subjects offered allow pupils to achieve the English Baccalaureate, vocational course or a Pre-Apprenticeship route which includes a college placement.
Our mission statement asks students to “work to become the best that they can be”. We know that high quality teaching is vital to ensure pupil progress. Strategic planning, innovative teaching methods, and sensitive but honest assessment, enable our pupils to achieve and celebrate their academic potential.
