The Surbiton High School curriculum is designed to meet the overall school aim of bringing out the best in everyone: to discover the best in everyone, to expect the best in everyone and to support everyone to achieve their personal best.
Surbiton High School is committed to providing opportunities for all pupils to learn and make progress in linguistic, mathematical, scientific, technological, human and social, physical, aesthetic and creative education. The curriculum provision also enables pupils to acquire and develop skills in speaking, listening, literacy and numeracy.
In addition, we provide a PSHE programme which gives pupils experience in spiritual, moral, social and cultural education and Career Guidance appropriate to the age and ability of the pupils. Details of how this is delivered can be found in the relevant policy document.
The curriculum is planned to be appropriate to the age, gender, ethnicity and aptitude of pupils; where a pupil has identified specific learning difficulties, appropriate support and guidance is provided through their Individual Education Plan/Learner Profile; where a pupil has a statement of Special Educational Needs, education is provided to meet its requirements (Ref: Special Needs and Learning Support Policy).
Our specific curriculum aims are:
- Providing a broad, balanced, challenging and enriching educational experience for all pupils
