The curriculum at SET Schools is set by the Trust Board. It is a broad and balanced, knowledge-based and vocabulary rich model which leads to students taking GCSEs at Key Stage 4. Our curriculum is structured by traditional subjects and sequenced appropriately to ensure systematic and thorough teaching for all. Rich cultural pursuits and a diverse enrichment programme are the other essential elements of the SET curriculum. The combination of GCSE subjects students are expected to take is designed to challenge and to enable each and every student to achieve:
- the broadest range of skills that will provide a foundation for the rest of their learning and working lives;
- a high level of literacy and numeracy that will underpin the rest of their learning;
- a rounded education which will prepare them for life.
Our combination of subjects means that our students can achieve highly within the framework of current national measures (% English and maths (Grade 5+) / EBacc) and in the up-and-coming national measures (Attainment 8 / Progress 8) at aged 16.
