Curriculum

At Tarporley, we strive to nurture and develop successful learners for the future, equipped with the skills that will enable them to prosper and achieve in the 21st  Century.

We therefore embrace a curriculum that is broad, well balanced and flexible enough to meet the needs of each individual. All students are encouraged and supported to achieve their full potential and to celebrate their successes. We firmly believe that by making learning challenging, innovative and engaging we help our students acquire the skills to become resilient, resourceful and reflective learners, both within and beyond the classroom.

Key Stage 3 (11-13 years) Years 7-9

During the first three years, students build on their successful work at primary school to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding which form the foundation for future study at Key Stage 4 and beyond. Our Key Stage 3 Curriculum includes the following subjects: English, Mathematics, Science, French, Spanish, Geography, History, Religious Education, Art, Design and Technology, Music, Drama, Physical Education, Information Communication Technology and Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE).

Key Stage 4 (14-16 years) Years 10-11

At Key Stage 4, all students follow a core curriculum, which includes English, Maths, Science, core PE, core Religious Studies and Personal, Social, Citizenship, Health Education (PSCHE).

In addition to the core subjects, students are given the opportunity to select a pathway appropriate to their needs and aspirations. The range of subjects students can choose from within these pathways is extensive and diverse, ensuring that students have a broad range of qualifications upon completion. Students are actively encouraged to follow choices that enable them to achieve the English Baccalaureate (English, Mathematics, Science, Geography or History and a Modern Foreign Language).
