Thorpe St Andrew School and Sixth Form has a broad and balanced curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical developments of students and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
This is achieved through a coherent and relevant Academic Curriculum that is clearly planned and sequenced with consistently high standards of teaching. Our Academic Curriculum is designed to counterbalance some of the barriers created by social disadvantage and allow all students to achieve excellence. In addition, our curriculum expands the horizon of our students to see beyond Norfolk and be ready to be members of a diverse global community. At Thorpe St Andrew School and Sixth Form we have also developed our Pastoral Curriculum. This is designed to support personal development, wellbeing and the growth of our students character. We believe that excellence is the result of the consistent application of three behavioural traits: Aspiration, Respect and Engagement. Our Pastoral Curriculum is delivered through Form Time and is the basis of all interactions in the school will.
Together our Academic and Pastoral Curriculum will build strong independent learners who are well prepared for the challenges of a highly competitive, rapidly changing global society.
Our curriculum also includes:
- Access to independent, impartial careers advice for students Pathways Guidance Coordinator who works closely with our PSHEE teaching team.
- Include Relationship and Sex Education (RSE)
- Citizenship and exploration of fundamental British Values.
