Bradley Stoke Community School

Curriculum Overview


The curriculum at Bradley Stoke Community School supports our ambitious vision and enables all students to become:

  • Successful learners, who enjoy learning, make excellent progress and achieve their best
  • Confident individuals, who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives
  • Responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society 

We have constructed the curriculum on the following principles:

  • Ensure there is a broad and balanced offer that enables students to develop and grow a lifelong love of learning and develop as independent learners
  • Provide experiences and qualifications to suit all our learners, offered across all key stages, that appropriately challenge students and enable them to succeed
  • Offer a wide range of enrichment activities and opportunities to develop personal interests including opportunities to broaden cultural horizons

Curriculum Model

Our KS1 and KS2 primary teaching is built around a Curious Curriculum, which is designed around our belief that learners should be active participants whose imagination is stimulated, curiosity is heightened and learning makes links to their lives and the wider world. See our primary curriculum page Bradley Stoke Community School - Primary Curriculum Subjects ( for more information.

At KS3 we offer a well-balanced and ambitious programme that entitles students to study the full range of subjects including English, Maths, Science, the Arts, Technology, PE, Humanities, Languages and PSHE. 

The curriculum continues into KS4 where, currently, students have the opportunity to select four subjects based on their own interests and aspirations. All students study English, Maths, Science and Religious Education as well as having discrete timetabled lessons in PE and PSHE. 

At KS5 we offer a broad range of subjects both within in our own centre and across the Olympus partnership. All subjects are delivered over 9 taught hours and 1 ghost period. In addition to examined qualifications, there are core and enrichment curriculums which provide students the opportunity to develop wider knowledge and skills to equip them for the next stage in life.
