Our schools follow the Futura Curriculum, which is designed by subject specialists to ensure all pupils can succeed, regardless of their starting points. The curriculum offers learning experiences that prepare pupils to become happy, successful and active global citizens.

Having all our schools follow the same curriculum offers many benefits:

  • It reduces teacher workload.
  • It makes it easier for teachers from different schools to collaborate and share best practice.
  • It makes the transition from primary to secondary school easier for pupils.

The Futura Curriculum gives teachers flexibility to create lessons that meet pupil needs.

We know that the Futura Curriculum is successful, as recognised by Ofsted in recent inspections.
