New Cross-Curriculum Projects

Description

Learn about the ways in which St John's School and Community College in Marlborough has been successfully revolutionising its KS3 curriculum since 2001.

From piloting the RSA's Opening Minds curriculum to creating its own modular approach built around core skills and competences, the school has strived to explore better ways of teaching and learning.

In this programme, headteacher Dr Patrick Hazlewood and director of curriculum innovation Kathryn Pollard explain how and why they took these initial steps, revealing how the innovations have led to improved standards of student attainment and behaviour.

We also see a Year 7 class engaged in a cross-curricular project to invent its own country, and hear from Year 13 students who talk about what impact the school's curriculum changes have had upon them.
