Curriculum Statement

Students at Chesterton Community College experience a broad, engaging and rigorous curriculum at Key Stage 3, which allows for deep engagement with a wide range of subject areas. In all subjects, students are taught carefully selected component content which enables them to access meaningful, complex composite activities.

Chesterton students are able to express themselves fully, through their written work as well as through discussion, and involvement in the creative arts. Students have the confidence to learn from others whilst making their own decisions.

Chesterton students are engaged, curious and well-informed. We ensure they are equipped with the correct tools to make the transition to young adulthood with the ability to debate and discuss key issues related to our wider society.

Chesterton students are prepared for independence. They are numerate as well as literate, well-informed regarding personal safety, and able to take responsibility for their own actions. Students show resilience in a range of situations and are equipped to lead an active, healthy lifestyle.

Chesterton students are part of a cohesive community. Students are fully aware of the diversity of their immediate school community as well as wider society, and are able to sensitively and respectfully interact with people from a range of backgrounds. Students are active in challenging prejudice and knowledgeable in terms of the origins of prejudice in our society.
