We implement our mission to be a School of Character through our bespoke LCA+ curriculum.
LCA+ is a challenging, broad and engaging curriculum consisting of seven academic and subject strands and seven strands of personal and social education and development.
The strands prepare and equip all pupils with the knowledge, curiosity and personal traits for success in the next phase of their education and life regardless of their background or any disadvantage.
The primary purpose of the curriculum is to develop to the maximum extent the academic and personal potential of each pupil.
Specifically, the LCA+ curriculum aims to create:
- learners who know more and remember more than the national curriculum and the examination and testing content and specification require;
- engaged learners who are developing better moral, physical, spiritual, emotional and social habits and dispositions;
- fluent and confident writers and readers;
- purposeful learners able to use numeracy and critical thinking skills to ask questions and solve problems;
- passionate learners who know how they learn and who love to learn.
