At Archbishop Tenison’s Church of England School, our vision is to teach a specialised curriculum for our community that both challenges and supports them. This will happen in a caring, inclusive Christian environment where service to others is the quality of character we value most highly.
A specialised curriculum for our community means delivering a coherent, broad and balanced curriculum that includes traditional academic subjects, vocational qualifications and the creative arts. It celebrates the different subject disciplines and their key concepts and language, it gives subject specialist teachers the freedom to share their expertise and inspire the young people they teach.
This each specialised subject curriculum is meticulously planned and the topics studied are sequenced so that departments build on prior learning, return to concepts that have pupils have studied before and develop knowledge and skills so that our young people master what they have learnt and are prepared for rigorous public examinations.
Our specialised curriculum will improve the life chances of our young people through academic success at GCSE, BTEC and A Level, and the chance to continue their studies at respected universities and vocational courses.
We believe that the cultural literacy that they gain during their time at Tenison’s will equip our young people for the rigors of the exciting, fast paced and complex society they live in.
