Our curriculum is defined as all the planned learning activities which the school offers in order for us to achieve our educational purpose. In addition to the taught curriculum (curriculum subjects, Learning for Life, CEIAG and Catch up provision) we include in our definition the experienced curriculum which captures all of the education experiences beyond the classroom.

Equally important to our taught curriculum is the portfolio of experiences that enable personal and social development, develop citizenship and community work and present challenge. This experienced curriculum offers opportunities for all pupils to:

  • participate in a wide spectrum of extracurricular activities
  • learn from residential retreats and out of school educational experiences
  • develop leadership roles
  • engage in works of charity and community cohesion
  • learn about their responsibility towards each other within our Brownedge family
  • collaborate across age groups through Interhouse activities and events
  • partake in a two week experience in the world of work

All these experiences have the aim of helping our pupils to develop their identity so they are ready and equipped to fully engage with life beyond school.

This year CASEO (Curriculum After School Enrichment Activities) was launched and this comprehensive program of clubs and activities is designed to foster a wide range of pupil interests and talents. We believe that learning outside the classroom is incredibly valuable and have excellent extra-curricular activities that are designed to broaden and develop the mind and body. During the school day pupils have regular opportunities to experience guest speakers and go out of school to visit cultural places of interest, exhibitions and theatres. In addition to this we run longer residential trips within the UK and abroad.
