Teaching & Learning at Hobart
Our curriculum is centred on the following rationale and intentions:
- Curricula are planned to develop a broad base of knowledge, skills and understanding between the ages of 11-16 (key stage 3 to key stage 4).
- We recognise and embrace the idea that acquisition of knowledge is fundamental to the application of skills and portrayal of understanding.
- The wide range of enrichment opportunities we offer outside of timetabled lessons are an important part of our curriculum offer and foster the personal development of our students.
- The goal of making our students aware of global and societal issues, and encouraging them to form their own judgements and perspectives. We want to create opportunities for our young people to develop empathy for the experiences of people who are different from themselves whilst also seeing themselves reflected in their learning environments.
Further details of the curriculum in place for different subjects can be explored via the links below, and this includes the key stage 4 GCSE options on offer. Each subject curriculum map is based on outlining the knowledge and skills pupils are entitled to access, the manner in which they are assessed, and the ways in which personal development opportunities are provided.
Our curriculum is designed so it is accessible to all learners irrespective of their starting points and individual needs.
