Curriculum

Curriculum

We want students to value their education; to be inspired to develop their potential and look beyond their own horizons to succeed in today’s every changing world. Our curriculum therefore is one which continually evolves, combining a commitment to the demands of academic rigour whilst embracing student’s personal development.

Update: We are redesigning our curriculum and from September 2022, Key Stage 4 will commence at the start of Year 10. The information in the curriculum pages is correct for the school year 2021/22, the new curriculum will be available to view on this website in the coming months.

To find out more about the curriculum Graham School delivers, please contact the school and ask to speak to the Assistant Headteacher – Curriculum.

Y9 students were invited to breakfast today. They all had an excellent year and are great role models! Miss Robins enjoyed hearing about career aspirations: dentist, lawyer, journalist, actor, teacher(we hope at #TeamGraham!), B&B proprietor and plans to go to university! 🥐👏🤩 pic.twitter.com/6TGx…
