General Curriculum Statement

At Kilgarth, we understand the importance of a flexible approach to the curriculum. This approach ensures that all of our young people have the opportunity to make academic and social progress throughout their studies.

Our aim is to inspire:

  • ambitious, capable learners who recognise the value of education in throughout their lives
  • enterprising, work skilled individuals ready to play a full part in life and work
  • ethical, informed citizens of the UK and the world
  • healthy, confident young adults, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society

We pride ourselves on providing a curriculum that is varied and meets the needs of our pupils – Ofsted 2015. Kilgarth offers a curriculum suited to the needs of the individual, with a strong provision for both the arts and science subjects.

Our curriculum is enriched through a diverse range of creative and physical activities during lessons and as part of a thriving extra-curricular timetable.

We have a strong focus on basic skills throughout the curriculum and implement a varied selection of intervention strategies to ensure that all of our young people are working at or making progress towards age related expectations in terms of literacy and numeracy.

Alongside our academic curriculum we have forged numerous partnerships with local vocational providers to engage and develop work related opportunities.

The subject sub-pages  (currently being updated) provide content of the curriculum for each subject.  If you require further information please contact Ms Westlake, Headteacher, on 0151 652 8071.
