Curriculum Overview

Our Academy is committed to working with children, families and the local community in supporting children to become Successful Learners, Confident Individuals and Responsible Citizens.

We value high standards of education as well as developing children’s sense of self and their responsibilities to the wider community. We are always striving to achieve more for the benefit of our children and families, broadening children’s opportunities and experiences and exposing them to new learning, theatre productions, residential trips,sporting competitions,public performances as well as opportunities to work alongside community leaders.  We are fortunate not only to be working together in a new school building, designed to facilitate a wide range of learning styles, but also to have a team whom are  enthusiastic about, and utterly committed to the children in our care.

Our curriculum is broad and deep, but targeted in a way to give the children who attend Shireland Hall the best chances of success in their future.  Core subjects are refined and well established and our wider curriculum areas were described as 'ahead of the curve' during our recent Ofsted inspection and we continue to develop these on a daily basis.  We have extremely strong subject leaders who are continually developing their expertise by working with external specialists and across the Academy Trust.  We are confident that children who come to Shireland Hall get a fantastic deal and our staff work tirelessly to ensure that our curriculum offer is one that our wonderful children deserve.
