OUR CURRICULUM INTENT AND VALUES
Our Areté Learning Trust curriculum is ambitious and based upon the evidence of how students learn. It exposes them to the best that has been thought and said so that they are challenged to be the best that they can be. Underpinning this, strong knowledge foundations and the highlighting of interdisciplinary links ensure learning is equitable for all.
Rich first-hand experiences broaden horizons and create fulfilment and enjoyment. Ultimately, students thrive academically, personally and socially enabling them to become active and responsible global citizens.
Curriculum design and coverage
Northallerton School & Sixth Form College aims to provide students with a broad and balanced curriculum, building upon the knowledge and understanding gained at Key Stage 2. The school provides a three-year Key Stage 3 and a two-year Key Stage 4, however the core subjects of English, mathematics and science do begin their GCSE teaching in Year 9 once they are confident that the subject knowledge has been secured from Key Stage 3. At Key Stage 5 students are able to select from a good range of academic and vocational courses, some of which are taught in partnership with Stokesley School & Sixth Form College to maximise the course offer.
