Curriculum Structure

Curriculum Structure

The curriculum at Our Lady's fully reflects the school's desire to promote cultural diversity and equality. Diversity and equality objectives are built into curriculum planning and departments deliver this area in a variety of different ways. Curriculum displays both in classrooms and in corridors also reflect the emphasis. The curriculum at Our Lady's is described as the 'mental scaffolding' that allows the students to understand the diversity of different cultures. Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is part of the fabric of all curriculum lessons and as such is not a 'add-on'.
(Camilla Chandler-Mant, SSAT CDQS 2014)

We are committed to offering a broad and balanced curriculum, which not only embraces the English Baccalaureate for all students, but equally allows students to access arts subjects, including: Art + Design, Dance, Drama and Music. Our links to overseas countries expands and enhances our curricular and extra-curricular offer, as we engage in a wide range of cultural projects
