At Helsby Hillside, we have begun a journey of development that will see the creation of a bespoke, cohesive curriculum for our children, reflective of our community whilst steeped in knowledge, offering our children opportunities to enrich and deepen their understanding of the world. In addition to this, we value children’s character education and facilitate this through our personal development curriculum and the non-curricular opportunities provided. We ensure that both our academic and personal curriculums are inclusive and, where necessary, tailored for children with additional needs.
Our aim is for children to acquire and assimilate new knowledge as they move through school via a curriculum journey that is coherently sequenced and ambitious. Our individual subject curriculums will be rich in substantive knowledge whilst also embracing the individuality of each subject through the teaching of disciplinary knowledge. Experiential knowledge is also an important part of our curriculum and is delivered through practical classroom experiences, school trips, residentials and visiting workshops.
By the time our children leave us, they are well-equipped with what they need to continue to be successful in life. We see this as not only serving the purpose of being secondary school ready, but ready to become active, responsible citizens in our community.
