Curriculum

Our curriculum model, based on the National Curriculum as a broad and balanced platform, will have a specialism in Health Sciences and Care Studies and will provide opportunities for pupils of all abilities and backgrounds to succeed. Sutton Church of England Secondary School will also offer a high quality spiritual, moral, social and cultural education while promoting British values. The whole curriculum and approach to teaching will be underpinned by Christian values.

The curriculum specialisms are a key part of our vision and represent a platform from which we will build high levels of personal development, well-being and achievement from Year 7 onwards. We will exploit the natural links with Health Sciences and Care Studies to raise achievement for all learners, encourage self-confidence and support cognitive development.

There will be extended-day enrichment opportunities to support pupils’ academic and personal development which also aim to make Sutton Church of England Secondary School a parent-friendly institution. These opportunities will include a breakfast club and after-school activities, clubs and societies with access to competitive sport, and a supervised Homework Club.

State-of-the-art ICT and computing facilities will enable all pupils to gain full access to the curriculum. Continuous monitoring and assessment of the quality of teaching and each learner’s progress will maximise pupil progress, create a culture of continuous improvement and facilitate early intervention where needed.

When they leave us, students will have received an excellent education preparing them for higher education and employment.
