Curriculum Overview


Curriculum planning is like crafting a roadmap for learning. It’s about figuring out the best routes and pit stops to make the journey educational yet fun. 

It involves a systematic approach to designing, implementing, and evaluating the educational journey. At Penkridge Middle School we try to integrate traditional disciplines with innovative ones, emphasising critical thinking, digital literacy, and global awareness. We aim to foster intellectual curiosity, encourage students to explore beyond textbooks, use technology appropriately where possible and encourage the extension of learning when not in the classroom. The aim is to equip learners with skills relevant for the 21st century, ensuring they emerge as well-rounded individuals ready to navigate the complexities of an ever-evolving world. Our commitment is to an inclusive, dynamic curriculum that inspires lifelong learning.

Please see the individual road maps for subjects at Penkridge Middle School to give you a flavour of what your child will learn during their time with us to build on their prior knowledge and to prepare them for the next step of working closely with the school in the Penk Valley Trust.
