Our Curriculum Vision

At Brighton Hill Community School, our curriculum stretches far beyond the 6 lessons that our students are taught every day. Curriculum is the whole experience that students receive: from assemblies and visits from inspirational role-models to educational trips, from Year 7 Community Lunch to our core values of Respect, Kindness and Living without Harm.

We are designing our curriculum so that it helps to develop and grow our students into the balanced, healthy and resilient people that we know they are capable of becoming. Our aim is to provide them with breadth and balance in their curriculum experiences and to cater for the diverse needs and interests of all of our students so that they are equipped take their next steps to personal success and achievement when they leave us. 

Our Curriculum Aims

  • To create an environment for our students where success is inevitable
  • To foster an enjoyment of learning within our school culture, in which students make good progress and achieve excellence, taking into account individual needs and interests
  • To provide opportunities to help our students grow into confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives and make a positive contribution to society

Our Curriculum Principles

  • To provide breadth of experience in a range of subjects at Key Stage 3
  • To ensure that English and Mathematics are prominent in the curriculum, to ensure that students have the essential skills needed to access the full curriculum and for life beyond school
  • To develop a comprehensive Values programme which ensures that students are well-rounded and gain important life skills 
  • To ensure that students are offered a wide range of enrichment opportunities to enhance their experience of learning, life and culture
