Sackville School’s Curriculum

For a quick summary of what we stand for, here is ‘Sackville on a Page’.

At Sackville we aim to provide an engaging curriculum that allows all students to achieve their potential regardless of their ability or talents; ensuring as a school that we fight for every child. Our curriculum will provide clear progression routes which prepare students for the world of work and to live fulfilling adult lives as global citizens; leaving students with a lifelong love for learning.

The principles that sit behind our vision are clear. Our curriculum needs to be:

  • Inclusive
  • Engaging
  • Rigorous
  • High quality
  • Appropriate
  • Celebrated

And this is summarised in the diagram below:

Since September 2012 Sackville  has operated a two year KS3 which has proved very successful in engaging our students through challenge and pace and providing them with the necessary skills to make good progress at KS4.  The resulting reduction in breadth in the taught curriculum in  year 9 has been  amply compensated  with a  wider creative  curriculum experience  in all years and a contemporary humanities course in Year 9.
