We are in desperate need of timber (pine or any hardwood), sheets of MDF and/or plywood. https://t.co/BaQc8dCqYe

The fundamental intent of our curriculum is:

To ensure competency in literacy, numeracy and oracy

To give students the disciplinary knowledge in a broad range of subjects to allow them to enter their future pathway of their choice

To equip the students with the knowledge and skills relevant to life  in the 21st century 

To nurture students to become curious, resilient, empathetic, reflective and who aim for excellence 

Subject Curriculum Intent:

History students at the Beacon will be equipped to grapple with challenging and interesting questions about the past. Their study of history reflects debates between academic historians, enables them to understand the world around them and empowers them to critically evaluate arguments about past and present local, national and international affairs. At the end of KS3, in order to be ready for the demands of KS4 and KS5 and to become active citizens, students will:

  • Have a critical understanding of historical evidence and interpretations and how to handle them in order to be able to conduct historical enquiry
  • Have the ability to sequence historical events and construct a narrative of British history since 1066 (and beyond)
  • Be able to explain their ideas clearly, drawing on historical evidence to support their points and know how to make reasoned judgements
  • Have a secure understanding of history-specific second order concepts such as cause and consequence, change and continuity, significance, evidence, similarity and difference
  • Have a secure understanding of first order concepts such as religion, the economy, power, monarchy, democracy, dictatorship, freedom, diversity, revolution, protest, war, persecution, class, race, gender, genocide etc.
  • Have the verbal and written communication skills to confidently and coherently express their ideas using sophisticated terminology
