We offer a curriculum that is ambitious and successful. The curriculum in all subjects is planned and sequenced so that new skills and knowledge build on prior learning. We focus on depth of learning before breadth in subject content. Our curriculum addresses cultural capital: we want our students to have access to the best that has been done, written, spoken, painted, designed and composed.

We believe that the curriculum at our school should be:

  • Broad
  • Balanced
  • Inclusive
  • Relevant

We want our students to have experiences and opportunities that they enjoy, are life-affirming, relevant and useful. JKHS students should leave us well-prepared for further study or employment in the 21st Century Global marketplace. British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs, underpin our curriculum, teaching and community.
