The Wider Curriculum is the part of our ‘Whole Curriculum’ which includes all of the additional activities, events and visits that we encourage children to take part in outside of lessons as well as PHSE related learning about staying safe, healthy and preparing for life in modern Britain. All of these opportunities and wider knowledge supports our pupils Personal Development as young people.
The Wider Curriculum represents a substantial part of the educational experience, involving activities that take place beyond the academic curriculum – and often outside the classroom. It is an essential part of the learning experience, offering the opportunity to learn about life in its broader context: its challenges and opportunities, how to respond to successes and occasional disappointments. It also represents the significance of extra-curricular activities within the ethos of the School and the idea of a balance to be achieved between academic focus and recreational enjoyment.
