Welcome to Turton’s curriculum.


Here we provide a whole school curriculum narrative, charting a pupil’s journey through the knowledge, understanding and application of each subject, from year 7 to year 13.


The philosophy of each curricular area outlines the fundamental concepts behind each subject and its reason for being, whilst the narrative highlights the organising principles that run through the learning experience and the big ideas associated it.


We have selected what we believe to be ‘the best of what has previously been thought, said and done’, to provide pupils with important knowledge: Knowledge that they can build on to make sense of the world around them.


The narrative illuminates each subject, drawing connections between them and provides a clear perspective on how each subject, topic or idea forms part of a much bigger picture.


We are excited to share with parents and pupils our curriculum overview, representing a coherent, knowledge-rich curriculum that provides a strong, academic education through the three ways of the Trivium.
