Curriculum Intent

The curriculum at Wyvern College is designed to provide challenge and support in equal measure to ensure that all students can achieve their potential regardless of their ability. We regularly review our curriculum to guarantee that it fits the needs of our students and we pride ourselves on providing an innovative and individualised approach to teaching and learning.

Our curriculum not only gives students the opportunity to achieve academic success but to develop as independent learners and responsible citizens. Our moral purpose to equip students with the best possible chance of success in their futures is at the heart of every decision we make. This gives us a clear focus when we make decisions about the qualifications and programmes of study on behalf of our students.  Our school values of courage, commitment and compassion and the social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of students are key features of curriculum design and lesson planning in all subject areas.

We have very high aspirations for our students and expect them to take ownership and responsibility for their success by maintaining an excellent attitude to learning.

As a Church of England Academy we place high value on the teaching of religious studies in order to provide students with knowledge of faith, spirituality, religions and beliefs. In doing so we are teaching our students to uphold the ‘British Values’ of tolerance and understanding and equipping them with the skills necessary to be responsible citizens.
