The Waldegrave Curriculum
The curriculum at Waldegrave is underpinned by our three values: Enjoy, Achieve, Empower. We aim for students and staff to enjoy learning, to achieve success and to feel valued. The curriculum is carefully planned and regularly reviewed to ensure that it meets the needs of all learners. We aim for a curriculum that is engaging and demanding; that not only ignites a passion for different fields of study but also prepares students for the workplaces of the future.
At Waldegrave we know that secondary schools are uniquely placed to offer students the opportunity to study new subjects which may excite a lifelong interest. Our curriculum is delivered by specialist teachers whose passion enthuses our students. Students will enjoy the opportunity to further explore subjects through trips and our enrichment programme.
At Waldegrave our curriculum is broad, balanced and age appropriate, allowing students to secure the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to succeed at each stage in their learning, both at school and in their future lives. Whilst as an academy Waldegrave is not required to follow the National Curriculum, we ensure that all aspects are delivered at KS3 so that our students are ready to achieve in the next phase of their learning.
At Waldegrave we are committed to empowering students by ensuring that our curriculum is representative and diverse, challenges stereotypes and builds students’ confidence and cultural capital. Students' ambitions are nurtured and supported through a comprehensive careers and advice programme, helping students secure destinations matched to their personal aspirations.
