The Riddlesdown Curriculum provides students with a broad and balanced education. Its aim is to provide students with the knowledge and skills which provide the foundation from which they can continue learning throughout their lives. This is achieved through both timetabled lessons and planned activities, which both help to prepare students for employment and will enable them to make a positive contribution to society.
The curriculum is delivered through a two week cycle of sixty lessons each lasting fifty minutes (some lessons may be doubles in practical subjects) and students are set by ability in the majority of subjects. There is some flexibility in setting between different subjects.
