Curriculum Intent

At Hurstmere, we have high aspirations for all our pupils, and our broad and balanced curriculum is tailored to foster a love of learning.  We deliver a curriculum which is coherently planned and sequenced towards cumulatively sufficient knowledge for skills to give our pupils the foundations to fulfil their ambitions.

Our pupils are equipped to access further and higher education, and employment through our provision of a broad range of qualifications and wider learning opportunities, aimed to make all pupils feel like their particular strengths are catered for, which illustrates our high academic and technical ambition for all.

We have high expectations of each pupil, with appropriate levels of support and challenge put in place. This helps to make our pupils confident, curious, independent learners, who can adapt to achieve their goals. Both in lessons and through extra-curricular offerings, our pupils’ moral, social, spiritual and cultural development is central to our ethos. As such, we encourage and teach our pupils how to be polite, tolerant and empathetic, so that they can contribute positively to the local, national and global community. Ultimately, our curriculum aims to nurture our pupils, allowing them to be good role models and well-rounded individuals in all aspects of their lives.
