We passionately believe that our bespoke curriculum, both within and beyond the classroom, has a relentless focus on engaging and involving all our pupils.
Our rich curriculum ensures that we provide world class education for all of the children within our Federation of Schools. Enrichment is every pupil’s entitlement and we promote opportunities to learn beyond the classroom which inspire and motivate pupils to achieve outstanding progress in every lesson.
Teaching and learning are personalised throughout the curriculum through tailored programmes for a wide range of pupils with differing needs, so that all are able to participate, progress and achieve. Our future thinking curriculum ensures that the children develop into global citizens who have lively and enquiring minds. All pupils who attend the Gipsy Hill Federation have the ability to think critically and philosophically. Children leave our family of schools feeling secure and prepared to enter the wider world as active and responsible participants in society. We are confident that the Gipsy Hill Federation curriculum prepares our children for careers in a fast changing world.
At the GHF we are proud of our broad and rich curriculum. It has been highlighted as a strength in Ofsteds across our schools:
‘The creative curriculum is broad and balanced. Pupils have exciting opportunities to learn beyond the classroom through a wide range of activities, such as educational trips and special events, linked to the topics they study.'
‘The school’s broad, balanced and creative curriculum is expertly organised.’
Glenbrook Ofsted 2016
‘The curriculum is a real strength of the school. Effective planning across all subjects leads to good learning and gives pupils something purposeful and concrete to write about… Leaders ensure that they promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development effectively. There are regular opportunities for pupils to reflect both on their learning and on deeper philosophical questions… Empathy is very well fostered.’
Kingswood Ofsted 2019
‘All leaders, including governors, are ambitious for pupils and have been highly effective at designing what pupils should learn. Subject planning is well developed across key stages 1 and 2 and provides pupils with a range of experiences that broaden their horizons. Subjects such as history and geography are exceptionally well planned and well taught. Consequently, all pupils are interested in their learning and remember a lot of relevant knowledge from the topics they have studied.’
