Curriculum

Future Education is committed to putting the needs of our students at the heart of our curriculum. We believe in providing a supportive yet challenging learning environment where students with diverse needs can re-engage with study. 

We recognise that how students learn is as important as what students learn. We believe that only through meaningful relationships of trust and understanding can we help students develop the wellbeing and confidence to learn, grow and achieve. 

The aim of our curriculum is that students: 

  1. Are empowered to become successful learners who value their achievements and reach their full potential. 
  2. Are able to recognise and make positive choices that lead to lifelong learning. 

The curriculum therefore is intended to: 

  • Promote re-engagement in education    
  • Provide broad and balanced education for all students  
  • Be flexible to meet the diverse needs of students through learning pathways 
  • Build on existing knowledge, skills and understanding  
  • Challenge students to achieve their potential 
  • Reflect the multi-cultural nature of society and build on British Values 
  • Inspire learning through Cultural Capital
  • Develop confidence, respect, and wellbeing 
  • Enable students to remain healthy and safe from abuse, criminality, radicalisation and extremism 
  • Prepare students for the next steps in their journey 

The curriculum is designed to ensure that all students have access to English and Maths as a mechanism to develop core literacy and numeracy skills in addition to Science, Humanities, PSHE, Art, ICT, Media and PE. Further subjects are available through our options process for Year 10 and Year 11 students e.g. Geography, Health and Social Care and Music Technology.
