Challenge Curriculum

Challenge-based learning allows pupils in Lower School and Key Stage 3 to access a creative approach to learning whilst maintaining a Secondary school curriculum. In Challenge, students use a theme as a platform to contextualise everything they are learning from the National Curriculum; learning experiences are therefore meaningful. At the end of each term, pupils consolidate subject knowledge and skills through organising and delivering a Challenge which incorporates the theme, thus empowering students to lead their own learning and achieve success. For example, in the past, pupils developed and produced cinematic experiences, festivals, radio shows and exhibitions.
