To ensure the transition from primary to secondary school, we have remodelled the year 7 and year 8 curriculum to ensure students make that change successfully. The Baccalaureate curriculum is taught in mainly double lessons, and covers approximately three quarters of the year 7 Curriculum. This means that your child has three main teachers resulting in a greater opportunity for us to really support your child both academically and pastorally. Students move around the building less and learning time is maximised.
The curriculum has been developed as a topic led curriculum that means teaching and learning happen in a more meaningful and personal way for our students.
The curriculum is designed to ensure all learners achieve their full potential. A teaching assistant supports each class. The social and emotional aspects of learning are important to us and we aim to provide lessons that build self esteem and raise aspiration.
Our gifted and talented learners are set challenging tasks to ensure they continue to reach the highest levels possible. Our less able, less confident learners are nurtured and supported with tasks that are relevant, meaningful and achievable.
The Sedgehill Baccalaureate seeks not only to ensure each one of our students experience the perfect start to their secondary education but that we develop skills for learning that will guarantee them success throughout KS3 and KS4, at G.C.S.E. and beyond.

"At Sedgehill we recognise that the skills, knowledge, experiences and talents that students bring with them from secondary school are a firm foundation to be built upon. Our aim is to ensure every child settles into secondary school life quickly and that they feel safe and secure."Baccalaureate Subject Leader for Year 7 - Lisa Cox
