Current Curriculum Theme

Zero to Hero” is a thematic unit about heros and heroines, both past and present, who have overcome major challenges in life and become inspirational fi­gures. There is a key subject focus on history.


Curriculum Breadth

The other subjects included in this thematic unit are art, design technology, drama, ICT / computing,
literacy, maths, music, PSHE and science. Breadth comes, not only from the range of subjects offered, but
also from their careful integration, leading to more connected thinking. Global Dimensions help pupils

the globe, as well as understanding their own place in the worldwide community.
