The St George's School Curriculum

The curriculum at St George's School is being designed to prepare our young people for a purposeful and successful future. The students of today will be the solution finders of tomorrow, ensuring that that they, their families, wider society and the global community have all of their needs met in a secure world. In playing our part, we are developing a curriculum around four key drivers:


Learning is not just about being taught a new skill or piece of knowledge. Learning only truly takes place when a new idea has been mastered to the extent that it is stored securely in our long term memory and can be recalled and used when required. When we are able to confidently draw upon our skills and knowledge, we be content that we have learned well. As they say, 'once you have learned to ride a bike, you never forget'.


The opportunities we are offered in life are limitless. Indeed, the only limiting barrier we have is our own sense of aspiration, desire and effort. 


Learning occurs when we are about to acquire a new skill or knowledge, something that we have not been able to do before, something that might challenge our existing ideas or beliefs. Learning can require effort. We may need some stamina. We might have to stick at it and show determination. Resilience helps us to learn well, to manage difficult situations and strive to achieve our goals. If we are challenged in the classroom we will often feel 'stuck'. This is a positive feeling, as it is the point at which we show resilience, think afresh, consider new learning and have a go!


Life has much to offer. Whether it be the simple things in life, or whether we are able to try something that we have not done before, the opportunity to experience new, exciting, interesting and healthy activities enriches our lives and helps us to learn. So, whether it be a walk in the woods, standing in the rain, watching an event, trying a new skill ... whatever the opportunity, it does us good to have a go.

Each year group has an overarching theme within each term. We endeveavour to create an engaging and enriched curriculum experience.
