Two Rivers High School Curriculum Statement

Curriculum Aims

Here at Two Rivers High School, our curriculum is varied, differentiated and creative. Our ethos of “education through creativity” is the basis in which we have built our curriculum. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of all our students and allowing them to achieve their potential.

Through our curriculum we endeavour to provide our students with a sense of self-worth, responsibility and self-discipline. A differentiated curriculum allows our students to grow in confidence whilst acquiring new skills; to become as independent as possible and to achieve individual academic success. Our curriculum is flexible, allowing us to provide students with a variety of worthwhile experiences which form the cornerstones of their educational pathway. Practical, theory and interactive lessons both challenge and motivate our students to accomplish their goals.

As a school we have high standards and expectations for our students and we set aspirational targets that drive our students. We guide our students through a number of courses and programmes such as AQA unit awards, Entry level certificates, functional and freestanding qualifications, WJEC Pathways certificates, GCSE biology and GCSE short courses. We also provide  Sports Leaders qualifications alongside vocational options and Duke of Edinburgh. Our after school clubs offer students a well-rounded and fulfilling school life. Our Solar assessment programme allows us to track progress to maintain a curriculum that is relevant to our students.
