This is a programme in which the school shares best practice with others throughout the country, helping to raise standards and, vitally, giving students a better future and brighter hope. The programme has three pillars – Currency, Character, and Culture – that combine to provide a Pathway to Success.
Currency refers to the qualifications that our students receive that enables them to be successful in later life and access the pathways available to them. However, in a changing world academic success is only part of what it means to be successful and through our new
and exciting Character and Culture curriculum we provide an opportunity for students to develop skills and qualities that will give our students ‘The Edge’. As Martin Luther King says "Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education."
A carefully crafted learning journey has been created that sees students go on a journey of self-discovery and growth from day one of year 7. During this journey, students will develop key skills in leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative and communication referred to as
LORIC. These key attributes will be accredited through the PiXL edge award as students involve themselves in the wider life of the school and beyond.
In addition, students will explore key life areas in terms of personal, social and health education. As a Catholic school, our students will have the opportunity to explore the value of altruism as shown through the values of Christ in the Gospels. They will explore their role in society and understand the importance of E-safety and personal health both in terms of physical and mental wellbeing.
