Our Curriculum Principles
In January 2015, we published our Statement of Curriculum Principles, following consultation with staff, students and parents. You can view this document here.
We are currently reviewing these principles, and expect to release an updated version later this academic year.
Key Stage 3 Curriculum
We have produced a booklet that contains the Key Stage 3 Depth of Learning Assessment Criteria for every subject in Year 7/8. This provides a comprehensive guide to the topics taught at Key Stage 3, and how teachers assess student learning. You can view the booklet here.
Key Stage 4 Offer
We are in the process of reviewing our curriculum offer for current Year 8 pupils who will select their options later this academic year. In the meantime, you can view the Options booklet and Presentation to Parents from last year, which gives an overview of the courses that are typically available to pupils at Key Stage 4, which students are following in Years 9 and 10.
You can find an overview of the content of the curriculum for every subject in Year 7 to Year 11 by going to Subjects (link: http://www.sydenham.lewisham.sch.uk/Subjects) and then navigating to the curriculum overview section for each subject (coming soon).
