Millfield Science & Performing Arts College aims to create a safe, caring and happy community in which our children learn to meet, with confidence, the challenge of their future.
We provide a caring community within which pupils develop their true potential in intellectual, physical, creative, moral and social terms. Self-awareness and confidence are fostered to enable them to become responsible participants in an ever changing society with an awareness of the value of education.
Millfield Science & performing Arts College aims to create a safe, caring and happy community in which our children learn to meet, with confidence, the challenge of their future.
We aim to create a safe, disciplined and attractive environment in which children are encouraged:
- to develop a genuine desire to learn
- to recognise and develop their own capabilities
- to take pride in their own and others’ achievements
- to become confident, caring and responsible young people
- to understand that learning is a lifelong experience.
KEY STAGE 3 - YEARS 7, 8 AND 9
In Key Stage 3 the pupils are placed into mixed ability groups. This allocation of pupils allows for flexibility of pupil grouping so that each department may determine the most appropriate teaching organisation to suit its requirements and teaching strategies, and so set work related to the abilities of the individual. The first year is planned to continue and extend the skills introduced in the primary school so that a gradual transition for pupils into the work and atmosphere of a secondary school may be made. National curriculum requirements are ensured by formal liaison between Millfield Science & Performing Arts College and the partner primary schools. A broadly similar curriculum, balanced in content, is followed by most pupils in the first three years.
KEY STAGE 4 - YEARS 10 AND 11
In years 10 and 11, pupils continue to pursue a broad and balanced curriculum. This is ensured by a combination of core and compulsory subjects. A limited guided choice within seven pathways and areas of experience is permitted. Some disapplication takes place to facilitate specialisation and the work-related curriculum.
We have been a specialist college since September 2005 and are very excited about the wonderful opportunity that this provides for us.
We are one, of only two, Science and Performing Arts Colleges in the country. The two, very different specialsims allows us to develop out students into inspired, creative learners who will take their knowledge, skill and talent into higher education, training and the world of work.
There are three main areas to college status: improving attainment, working with the community, and developing resources. Attainment will be improved through the development of creative and motivating learning and teaching styles, in a climate that is conducive to learning, where every child matters and is considered an individual with individual needs and requirements.
