Curriculum Information Evening

On 20 April 2023 we held a Curriculum Information Evening to introduce our new school curriculum to Year 7 and 8 parents. This curriculum will be formally launched in September 2023. 

During the presentation we explained the thinking behind the revised curriculum and the content that will be included. We looked at how the curriculum will be sequenced and how we will continue to ensure excellent outcomes for our students through the inclusion of effective progression strategies and assessment.
