At Lancaster School we strive to meet the learning needs of each pupil on an individual basis, identifying and developing strengths, priorities and specific skills related to the priorities. Aims and objectives are identified in consultation with parents.
Individual teaching aims are addressed within the context of a curriculum that is broad, challenging and relevant to the needs of every pupil. Teachers seek to provide pupils with coherent learning experiences through the development of clear and concise policies for each curriculum area.
Communication and Personal, Health and Social Education (PHSE) are regarded as key elements for all pupils at the school.
The core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and Information Technology, together with Religious Education (RE) and the foundation subjects of Design and Technology, Music, History, Geography, Art and Physical Education (PE) are taught throughout the school in a manner which is accessible to each pupil. Modern Foreign Languages are introduced, where appropriate, as part of a cross-cultural experience for students in the Upper School. Each subject is taught as a discrete subject area. Teaching is supported through the use of Information Communication Technology (ICT) hardware, software and peripherals.
A brief outline explaining our approach is provided in this prospectus. If you would like copies of the full curriculum policies or Schemes of Work, please contact the school.
