Curriculum

School Vision & Curriculum Aims

To promote the highest aspirations amongst students: to have dreams for the future and to work towards them in the present 

To develop resilience, self-belief and self-motivation

To enable every student to reach their full academic potential

To promote the social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of every student and to develop British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs

To create a safe and secure, disciplined and happy learning environment

Our curriculum intent is to:

Provide a broad and balanced education for all students at WCHS which builds on prior knowledge and skills

Engage students in learning which is enjoyable, stimulating and relevant  to students now and for the future

Provide a cohesive, progressive curriculum where explicit links between subjects and across key stages are forged

Enable students to develop knowledge, understand concepts and acquire skills, and be able to choose and apply these in relevant situations; and to instil an aspirational mindset

Support students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development to enable them to become responsible, respectful members of the local and wider community

Support students’ physical development and responsibility for their own health, and enable them to be active

Promote a positive attitude towards learning; pride in their own progress and achievement; and a strong work ethic, through providing a curriculum which offers opportunity to celebrate and share success: valuing attainment, progress and effort equally

Ensure equal access to learning, with high expectations for every student and appropriate levels of challenge and support

Provide subject choices that support students’ learning and progression, and enable them to work towards achieving their goals

Ensure that as many students as possible leave our school equipped with a strong set of GCSE results

Develop students’ independent learning skills and resilience, as well as their communication and numeracy skills, to equip them for post-16 education, further/higher education and employment and to become lifelong learners.
