Curriculum

At Grange Park School we offer rich learning opportunities. Building upon close liaison programmes with feeder schools, we continue to develop firm foundations in the basics of literacy, numeracy and communication skills so that all young people can benefit from a broad, enriched curriculum and a wide range of opportunities.

 

We provide a purposeful learning environment which young people respond to and enjoy. We are committed to sustaining a school where pupils learn together about the meaning and value of community and the importance of lifelong learning.

 

Our curriculum is designed to be flexible to allow for personalised learning. All pupils in Key Stage 3 follow a curriculum which fully prepares them for Key Stage 4 qualifications in Year 11.
