St Martin's Curriculum

OUR SCHOOL VALUES

OUR INTENT

At St Martin in the Field High School for Girls, we believe that all students should study a broad and balanced curriculum. We believe in, and deliver, both a rigorous academic curriculum but we also believe in developing the Arts and Practical Creative subjects. These subjects are important both for nurturing lifelong interests but also to provide an outlet and to support wellbeing in a pressured modern world.

Our students are at the heart of our family and what we do and as such our planning of the curriculum focuses entirely on the needs of our students and how best to support them through close work with our primary schools, colleges and other outside agencies to ensure all transitions are as smooth as possible.

We provide a balanced pastoral structure to give our students the confidence to develop holistically through our wellbeing programme  so that they are able to demonstrate teamwork and leadership skills.  Our curriculum prioritises to allow for our students to achieve high standards in attainment and make excellent progress in all their subjects.  Our school is built on and driven by core values and we are committed to enabling all of our learners to become HEROIC underpinned by our school motto with love and learning. 


IMPLEMENTATION

The Curriculum offered at St Martin in the Fields High School for Girls for all our students is broad and balanced and provides them with an opportunity to study a wide range of different subjects.  In addition, we have made provision for our students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, so as to promote a tolerance towards, and a respect for, the different faiths, lifestyles and cultures of other people through our wellbeing programme from Year 7 to Year 11.  The curriculum in each subject can be accessed on the subject-specific pages of the website. Subject specialism is at the heart of our curriculum and you will see differences in the way that the curriculum is constructed and assessed in different subjects.

Key Stage 3 (KS3) students can expect to study a wide selection of differing subjects, exposing them to a broad base of knowledge.

Key Stage 4 (KS4) students can choose from a range of GCSE and vocational subjects. They are encouraged to maintain a broad and balanced selection to ensure they have a sound base for further study. There is a further opportunity for students to follow a community language and study it to GCSE or A level. 

All students follow a detailed education course encompassing personal, social, health, sex and relationships, economic and careers aspects which is designed to help them make the most of opportunities in and out of school. We are very fortunate in having an excellent team of outside speakers to enrich this programme. 

Key Stage 5 (KS5) students choose from a range of GCE and vocational subjects. Our Sixth Form is well established and our courses are primarily delivered in a dedicated multi-million pound block.
