Ambitious intent: Our inclusive curriculum means that all children are taught the most important knowledge, in the most appropriate sequence, to enable them to succeed. For young people attending our primary, junior and secondary schools, we provide an accessible and enjoyable educational experience, develop life-long skills and offer a wealth of rich experiences to enhance the curriculum.
Solid foundations: Across our curriculum, each stage is carefully planned to prepare for the next. Curriculum planning focuses on core and subject content knowledge to enable knowledge recall, fluency, automaticity and deep understanding. Expert subject specific planning across all subjects in parallel with an absolute focus on personal development, ensures we clearly define what children learn across each year and realise our vision of ensuring excellence.
Future focused: The scope of our curriculum in all areas is at least as ambitious as the National Curriculum at each stage so that our children can meet or exceed age-related national expectations and progress well to their next phase of education.
Educational excellence: Across our curriculum, we decide on the most important knowledge required in each subject at each stage and our teachers effectively adapt schemes of learning to meet the needs of students in their classes. The South Bank approach ensures that schools and teachers have absolute flexibility in their curriculum; taking into consideration local context, alongside parent and child choice and needs within our offer and design. Our schools robustly plan to best secure our children’s learning and progress and provide educational excellence for every child, every day.

We believe that education should support personal growth:
We believe in a rich, broad, balanced, and enriching curriculum:
We believe in meaningful education beyond the classroom:
