Curriculum

Welcome to Harris Academy Bromley’s Curriculum Information Page.

 

Curriculum Intent

Our curriculum design, is founded on our belief of ‘All Can: We Will.’ We believe that our curriculum guides students in their pursuit of knowledge, understanding and curiosity and is the bed rock of developing characters that Can and Will succeed. 

The curriculum focuses on developing the whole student through traditional academic pathways, cultural enhancement and character development. With the vision to develop and nurture student’s empathy, intellect and aspirations. Through the breadth of curriculum on offer, we ensure students have the necessary knowledge and skills to thrive in the modern world.

Our core values of commitment, optimism and resilience form the foundation of our work and we strive to ensure that the whole school community is committed to success, optimistic about the future and resilient in the face of adversity.

We believe in the inherent joy and power of learning. It is our fundamental belief that a carefully designed curriculum encourages thoughtful, intrinsically motivated students who are passionate about learning and a kind, empathetic and thriving community.

Implementation:

Academically, Harris Girls' Academy Bromley is one of the most successful schools in the country. With a Provisional Progress 8 of +0.71, our progress is amongst the very best of schools in the country and we believe that this is a result of high quality teaching, advice and guidance, alongside a carefully designed curriculum. We encourage the students to explore as many subjects as possible at Key Stage 3, before specialising at Key Stages 4 and 5 and we believe that it is important for the girls to study both the Modern and Classical world, the Arts and Scientific schools of thought.

Our students are guided and supported to ensure that the subjects that they choose to study at GCSE and at A-level, give them the best choice about what they want to do in the future; whether that is to go off to a Russell Group university or into employment or training. We review the curriculum every year in order to ensure that we have a suite of courses that will inspire and challenge, as well as create opportunities for success.

Alongside the main curriculum, there is an extensive Enrichment Programme for all key stages. The Enrichment Programme offers a broad and interesting variety of activities before and after the Academy day, which aims to extend and develop what the student’s study during the day and pique curiosity and understanding in activities, events or theories not covered explicitly during class time. The students are given incredible opportunities for cultural and academic enhancement and we are very proud of the fact that the students not only learn during lesson time, but also through performance, in productions, on school visits and through our many academic lectures. 

Students have discrete PSHE and RE lessons to ensure that they are exposed to a wide variety of Religious and Cultural experiences, as well as helping them tackle the challenges that they may face in the future. Students have British Values embedded through various aspects of school life. This includes learning through the assembly and tutor programme, which reflects on current events in the world, as well as through enrichment activities, charity events and external speakers.

Key Stage 3 Curriculum

The Key Stage 3 curriculum is followed by Years 7, 8 and 9 and is designed to provide depth and breadth of study whilst ensuring that appropriate time can be devoted to Mathematics, English and Science. Our intention is to give students a ‘taste’ of as many subjects as possible, whilst preparing them for and informing them about their GCSE options. Literacy and numeracy skills are developed in every subject and across the curriculum.

All girls in Year 7 study a language, which they will then continue to study until GCSE. Where appropriate, girls may pick up a second, additional language in Year 9. Design Technology includes Food Technology, Textiles and Product Design. All students study Physical Education for 2 periods a week and competitions between faculties and with other schools is encouraged.

Key Stage 4 Curriculum

The Key Stage 4 curriculum is followed by Years 10 – 11. All students will study Mathematics, English, Science, PE and Religious Education and the vast majority will study a Humanities and a Modern Foreign Language. The list of optional subjects is extensive and will provide the students with the opportunity to experience a subject, which may shape their passion for learning, future education and career.

Key Stage 5 Curriculum

At Key Stage 5 we are part of the highly successful Harris Sixth Form Federation and are pleased to be offering a number of subjects that students from other Harris Academies come here to study with us. The breadth of curriculum at Key Stage 5 is designed to appeal to both Academically focused students, with the intention of guiding them to the best Universities and Apprenticeships in the country and also providing high quality vocational courses in order to support students into the world of work or on to further high-quality training or education. For an extensive list of what is on offer in the Sixth Form, please consult the Harris Federation Sixth Form website.
