Our all-through, backwards planned curriculum drives progress to excellent outcomes through establishing a powerful knowledge base and a life-long love of learning.
As an all-through school, Reach Academy has considered the knowledge, skills and attitudes that are required to achieve academic excellence in each subject at A Level and beyond. Subject leaders and teachers then plan backwards from this point.
This ensures that pupils in each phase receive a rigorous, coherent and intelligently sequenced curriculum, which builds on what has come before. The curriculum at Reach is grounded in the strongest available evidence about how pupils learn and retain knowledge in the long term – focusing in particular on research from cognitive science.
We are working with schools across the country to support their curriculum in History and Geography at Key Stage 2 and 3. Click for more information, available on our Trust site.
