Kingsway Park High School follows the National Curriculum, ensuring that all statutory requirements are delivered while respecting the individual learning styles and needs of our students, so they can become successful and resilient young people. 

In accordance with Department for Education Guidelines the menu on the right contains the mandatory information we must publish together with additional supporting guidance to help parents / guardians support their children. 

 

Changes to the Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 Curriculum

Kingsway Park High School takes pride in continuously improving and a key area of focus this year is to review our curriculum. For launch in September 2020, we are currently working hard to redesign our curriculum to ensure that it is truly engaging, relevant, challenging, and prepares each student for the most happy, healthy, and successful future. This means each subject is reviewing what is taught and how topics are sequenced in line with the Government National Curriculum and other national guidance. All updated information about our school curriculum will be published on the school website in the summer term.
