At Ormskirk School we believe that the curriculum should bring to life our vision of “Building Aspirations. Achieving Excellence.” The best way to prepare our young people for a future that no one can predict, is to ensure all our young people have access to an ambitious curriculum, consisting of an academic, vocational and technical offer. This will enable our young people to have a high quality education built on a solid foundation, combining powerful subject knowledge with transferable skills so that they are able to achieve high quality qualifications: effective currency for their next stages such as access to the very best quality college courses, the most competitive apprenticeships, Russell Group university places and ultimately, successful careers in the future.

Ormskirk School aims to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that inspires pupils to learn and maximise their opportunities to progress and achieve their potential. Such a wide range of subjects helps pupils acquire knowledge, understanding and skills in all aspects of their education.

Staff engage in the collaborative planning of schemes of work and individual lessons to enhance ICE (Inspiring, Challenging, Engaging) teaching and learning.

Opportunities are provided for pupils to develop spiritually, morally, socially and culturally and this is enhanced through a wide range of extra-curricular activities, the skills for life programme, religious education, themed days and assemblies.

Pupils are put into progress groups when they join the school in year seven. Their tutor together with their year group’s progress and learning leader will monitor their progress during their time at Ormskirk School.

The curriculum overview for each year group will show how the classes are organised in more detail.

KS3

Students in years 7 to 9 follow a wide range of subjects with mixed ability groupings in many of their subjects. The work covered at KS3 gives a foundation for KS4 study.

There is a nurture group within each year for a small number of identified students in need of additional support; this enables them to be taught by fewer teachers, in smaller groups, with a curriculum designed to better meet their needs: ensuring academic rigour and opportunity via a more differentiated approach of smaller steps (chunking of curriculum content). We have ensured that this curriculum is also a broad and balanced one for the benefit of our learners.

KS4

Students follow a core curriculum plus 4 option subjects. The wide range of option choices gives all students the opportunity to follow an EBacc pathway should they choose to do so. GCSE and vocational courses are run at KS4. A small number of students follow an alternative pathway accessing a modified curriculum that is equally as broad and balanced as other learners in the school and will effectively prepare our young people for life beyond school.

KS5

Students can choose from both traditional A levels or vocational courses or a mix of both. Students are very well supported in their learning as classes tend to be small thus rendering guidance and feedback frequent and plentiful. Students who did not achieve a grade 4 in English and/or maths at GCSE will continue to study these subjects. All students follow an enrichment programme. The Extended Project is available to year 13 students.
