Meden School’s academic curriculum places ambitious subject knowledge at its core, complimented by a deliberate focus on wider knowledge that appreciates difference and challenges stereotypes and consider ethical dimensions in society. This combination ensures our students become well – informed young people who have the confidence and knowledge to become catalysts of change. Each subject makes a valuable contribution to the development of our students thinking, encouraging them to see the inequalities around them and ‘do something about them!’
The specialist knowledge taught in each subject area, including our Personal Development curriculum, is thoughtfully selected in line with the National Curriculum and intelligently sequenced so our students learn well over time. Specialist vocabulary sits at the heart of our academic curriculum and combines with our focus on oracy throughout the school, provides our students with the language and confidence to have their voice heard.
