Teaching & Learning
We want our students to be really excited and enlivened by the curriculum and to understand how it contributes to their achievements and challenges in later life. We have spent a lot of time and energy developing a curriculum architecture which shapes the journey through their time with us in a way which we believe will best serve their needs and aspirations. The faculty system enables groups of subjects and staff to work together with common curriculum goals in developing the particular attributes in learners which our community told us they would need in later life. Namely; curiosity; creativity; independence; the ability to self-regulate and maintain wellbeing.
In Key Stage 3 all students at Baycroft School have access to the full range of National Curriculum subjects, as well as some programmes which we have developed for wider learning, such as Enterprise and STEM. At Key Stage 4 this is supplemented with a wide range of options courses along with college and work experience placements, Opportunities for accreditation include GCSEs, BTECs, Gateway Vocational Diplomas, Entry Level Certificates of Achievement and various unit awards.
Our Key Stage 4 Optional subjects offer is constantly being revised and developed. For more information see our Key Stage 4 Options page
