Newbury School Curriculum
We provide an extensive curriculum including all National Curriculum subjects including: English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, R.E., PE., PSHE, Art, Food Technology, Music & Computing
We pride ourselves in creating a curriculum that is tailored towards the individual needs of each student, identifying their interests and how they would want to make positive contributions to society.
As well as the core national curriculum, we focus on social inclusion, British values, supporting vulnerable young people to realise their full potential, achieve academic and vocational targets, for progression into further education, full-time training and employment.
We identify cross curricular links to enable students to understand how subjects relate to each other. We provide a curriculum that equips students to apply all that they are learning to real life situations and as necessary reinforce their learning through educational visits.
The curriculum is enhanced by a range of teaching methods and provision. Enrichment sessions are tailored to the individual needs and abilities of each student.
Holistic Education is rooted in experiential learning and centers education on the relationships that people create with each other. These relationships form the core of the educational environment. Holistic education is considered a form of alternative learning because of its emphasis on creating a different learning environment from what is typically practiced.
