Our Curriculum Objectives
To develop a curriculum, with the aspirations, interests and success of the student at the centre, which:
- Encourages creative and flexible approaches to learning and teaching
- Offers an innovative, rigorous and holistic Catholic curriculum, both in and beyond the classroom
- Nurtures close partnerships with local, national and international organisations, giving students a wide range of opportunities to experience the world of work.
At St John Fisher Catholic College, we are consistently reviewing our curriculum to ensure that it is suited to the needs of our learners and will enable them to flourish in the ever changing modern world in which we live. We run a three-year Key Stage 3 curriculum where learners experience a broad and balanced range of subjects. The final year of Key Stage 3 (Year 9) is focused on ensuring they make an excellent transition into studying the high quality curriculum on offer during the next two years of Key Stage 4. Below you will see the subjects studied in each phase of the school and the wide range of subjects available throughout. All this is delivered by our experienced and expert teaching staff, ensuring the best possible outcomes for our learners.
This continues into Key Stage 5 with our fantastic Sixth Form provision with very popular A level and Applied courses available to ensure our learners make excellent progress towards the world of work.
We are proud of the fact we offer learners a diverse range of subjects and qualification types from which to choose. We are also proud of the fact that we have subject specialists in all areas offering these courses. Additional information for subject areas can be found on our website in the Overview, Learning Journey and Options pages.
