Academic Progression

Over the last few years, the academic life of the school has been imbued with new purpose.

At the heart of the School’s rigorous academic ethos is the key principle that all pupils must engage fully in their own learning and that, when they do this, anything is possible.

We plan our curriculum in Years 7-9 to support pupils in developing an active approach to their learning. We ensure that each pupil employs a range of learning methods in order to see what works for them. Sometimes quiet reflection and research is required, sometimes debate, discussion and group work.

Innovative teaching delivers energy and vitality to the classroom, where pupils debate, discuss and question. Enrichment and collaborative working is the lifeblood of our curriculum, opening pupils’ eyes to the fact that not everyone sees the world in the same way. This prepares our young people for higher education and the workplace beyond. Pupils achieve highly as we recognise that each will learn in different ways, and knowing our pupils well enables us to tailor the curriculum to their needs.

The collaborative nature of our classroom practice demands that pupils work together, sharing ideas while challenging and supporting each other. As a result, classrooms are lively places.

Learning at Blundell’s is a purposeful, rigorous and enjoyable experience, and we are very proud of what we are able to offer our pupils.
