Curriculum

The curriculum at George Pindar School is key to the development of the whole child. Whilst each student covers subjects as listed below, the essential thread throughout each lesson every day is to stretch, challenge and enthuse every student to give their very best and develop a passion for future life.

At George Pindar School, every student is truly known and often individually tailored programmes are developed to maximise their individual potential.

Beyond the classroom students experience wider opportunities through taking part in numerous extra curricula activities, community events, school performances and trips both at home and abroad.

Curriculum aims

  • To offer all students a broad, balanced and rich experience which will equip them to succeed in a rapidly changing world.
  • To create the conditions in which all students can grow and develop resilience and creativity.
  • To develop thoughtful, responsible, informed members of the local, national and international community.
  • To maximise outcomes for students so they are well placed for the next stage in their education, employment or training.
