Durrington High School

Curriculum

We strive to ensure that our students follow an engaging and relevant curriculum that will enable all students to achieve success. We are a truly comprehensive school, encouraging all abilities and aspirations, which is great preparation for post 16 education and life in general.  With this in mind, we need to ensure that the curriculum and opportunities we offer, allows all students to progress to the next stage of their education or employment. Our personalised curriculum provision requires us to work in partnership with parents, local business and educational establishments.

Alongside this, we have also worked hard to ensure that our curriculum develops essential life skills and confidence within our students, to ensure that they are well equipped when they leave us. We want students to enjoy their lessons and be inspired to continue learning beyond the classroom.

All students are taught in five one hour lessons a day over a two week timetable.
