Our students will enter the secondary phase of Hartland equipped with excellent study skills and with the confidence to take ownership of their learning. Our curriculum provides an all-round education, combining academic excellence with a wealth of enrichment opportunities. It has been designed to develop independent learning, resilience and confidence and our belief is that it will provide our students with immediate advantages in gaining places in top universities and, later on, in the workplace.
Our broad and balanced curriculum will continue to Year 9, after which the students will be supported as they make their GCSE / IGCSE course choices and become more specialized.
Alongside the academic programme, we will continue to offer a full Enrichment programme and our students are encouraged to engage in sporting, creative and community-based activities. Designed to explore future careers as well as stretching natural talents, the secondary enrichment courses inspire, challenge and engage our students.
In Years 12 and 13, we intend to offer either the broad-based International Baccalaureate Diploma or more specialised A Levels. Our team of Tutors, Advisors and Counsellors will be available to both our students and our parents who will guide you through these choices. Though only open to Year 8 at present, these specialist staff are already part of our Hartland staff team as we believe that such focus and aspiration does not begin in the Sixth Form, but far earlier in the life of the student school journey.
Participation in the Model United Nations, the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and Debating challenges are already in place and on offer and details of these can be seen in our Enrichment Programme.
We believe that with the right support, teaching and guidance, our students will graduate from Hartland and take their place at the world’s top universities. We are confident that they will be courageous leaders, compassionate supporters and excellent decision makers, ready to make a difference on the global stage.
