Curriculum

Intent

At The Chalfonts Community College our aim is for our students to leave as well-rounded individuals who can make decisions about their future, confident that they have the knowledge and skills that they need to thrive in further or higher education. We want them to be ready for a life beyond school – to be employable and able to participate as engaged citizens.

Implementation

The curriculum at CCC is constructed to engage and motivate students to fulfil their full potential and be excited at being a lifelong learner.  All students receive a firm foundation in English, Mathematics and Science, complemented by a broad and balanced curriculum with the flexibility of a mixture of subjects in order to meet the full range of abilities and interests of our students.

Students choose GCSE options at the end of year 8 to allow a three-year Key Stage 4 programme. This reduces the pressures and stresses that can be experienced through a more traditional two-year Key Stage 4. All students are required to continue with either a humanity or language when choosing their GCSE options, and many take the full English baccalaureate. However our personalised approach means that the place of the creative arts is maintained within the curriculum in what we term a STEAM (Science Technology Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) agenda.

Impact

Moreover, we believe that our local context is such that that we should be the first choice school for students who want to participate in a curriculum that is built to meet the demands of the 21st century.
