Our curriculum is designed to reflect our vision statement: Believe, Aspire, Achieve.
Our aim is to develop the young people in our care, so that they arrive as enthusiastic children in Year 7, and leave us at the end of Year 13 as fully rounded young adults.
We want them to be ready to face the world with confidence and a belief that they can go on and achieve their dreams. We believe our students’ lives should be significantly enhanced by their experiences and opportunities at Kingdown School.
Our goal is to ensure that every student achieves excellence because of their time with us. We aim to achieve this goal through our three core values:
We believe that a broad and balanced curriculum that is supportive, flexible and inclusive for all gives our students a pathway for success. Unlocking our students’ potential through knowledge; and developing leadership, resilience and independence through opportunities, helps them to develop an understanding of the community and wider world.
We provide an aspirational curriculum that is ambitious and will enrich and empower students to access the next stage of their education; a curriculum that is challenging and outward looking and develops an aspirational character through opportunities both in and outside of the classroom. We aim to develop well rounded, outward looking individuals who can have a positive impact on society.
We achieve great outcomes through a curriculum that is well taught and engaging; allowing every student to have a deep understanding of all subjects and giving them the opportunity to achieve their full potential. Every student leaves our school with the skills and knowledge they need to become successful in the next stage of their education and lives.
