Curriculum Overview

At the core of the New Dawn, provision lies academic progress and attainment, to ensure that all our students leave Year 11 ready to continue with 6th Form/College studies, apprenticeships or other training.

We ensure a personalized approach to the curriculum, particularly at Key Stage 4. New Dawns 1:5 staff to student ratio means that the one-to-one opportunities necessary to achieve this can be created across the curriculum. 

New Dawns’ curriculum has been created to aid progressions through all ability levels and focuses on a prescribed aspect, with both academic and vocational options in Years 10 and 11. The subjects offered to provide a rich and varied range of materials designed to re-engage and motivate students. Our co-educational setting ensures that all choices are suitably and equally encouraged for both boys and girls.
