A tailored curriculum

Curriculum planning is at the heart of our success. It’s one of the main reasons children in our schools achieve the extraordinary results they do.

Teachers and students across our schools share a common understanding of what we teach, why we teach it, when and how. There is no short cut to excellent curriculum planning, but get it right and the impact on students’ learning is remarkable.

It’s just one example of how we plan for success – creating systems and processes that work because students, teachers and parents see their benefit.

But as well as achieving excellent results, students also feel looked-after and supported in a respectful, calm environment where everyone can thrive.

''Our Maths results improved by one whole grade as a result of engaging with the CST curriculum''
