An Innovative and Inspiring 21st Century Curriculum for Our Students
At King Edward VII College we are working from the perspectives of students’ aspirations, workforce demands, and progression routes to further and higher education. To this end, we have strong links with local and regional FE colleges, universities and employers. We have grown the curriculum with the intention of offering students a useful, appropriate and relevant suite of qualifications that provides a platform upon which their futures are established. However, integral to our curriculum is developing our students into well rounded individuals, who are confident, ambitious and have an appetite for success. Together with parents and students, we encourage, support and engineer opportunities and experiences through the curriculum that enables students to prosper both socially and economically as they journey into adulthood.
Although the curriculum is much more than simply the subjects studied, at King Edward VII College we are very mindful of expectations of higher and further educational institutions and the preferred subjects and combinations they require for entry to their various courses. Whilst experience through work placements has definite advantages in exposing students to the realities and expectations of the working environment, it is no substitute for a broad, balanced and highly regarded suite of qualifications.
'Virtually all students move on to higher education, employment or training. The vast majority have high aspirations, and increasing proportions go on to study at Russell Group universities.’OFSTED 2015
