Curriculum 2023-2024

The curriculum of Harris Professional Skills Sixth Form comprises a broad and innovative range of learning experiences planned for each student.  A personalised curriculum offer, in conjunction with excellent teaching that impacts positively on learning and progress will enable all our students to respond positively to the opportunities and challenges of a rapidly changing world.

  • To encourage the best possible progress and the highest academic achievement for all, by setting suitable learning challenges and fully recognising the diverse learning needs of each of our students.
  • To provide rich and varied contexts for students to acquire, develop and apply a broad range of knowledge, understanding and skills, to encourage a love of learning and a desire for lifelong learning.
  • To enable all students to develop their creativity and talents to the full.
  • To ensure the curriculum is appropriate to the employment landscape, preparing students for the challenges of a fast-changing world, and their futures as successful citizens for the 21st century
  • To promote students' self-esteem and emotional wellbeing through our curriculum, offering opportunities for students to develop their knowledge, understanding and appreciation of their own and different beliefs and cultures. 

Equity 

Our curriculum is underpinned by a commitment to equality of opportunity and we strive to ensure that all students are able to succeed no matter what their entry point is. The most vulnerable often already face the greatest barriers, we seek to remove or mitigate these to create success for all. This means that we have a sharp focus on reading, writing, speaking and numeracy. Some will require specialist teaching to help develop the basics that were not formed appropriately in Key Stage 1 and 2. For others this will be the development of subject specific language and knowledge through specialist teachers. All teachers know their classes and cater for the individuals in them, with our SEND students supported through learning passports and high quality teaching.
