Curriculum is at the heart of our thinking at Kenton School. A great deal of consideration goes in to deciding what knowledge and skills we teach our students, the order in which we teach them, and how we teach them in order for students to best retain them over time. Our broad curriculum has been designed to best equip our young people for the next stages of their lives after leaving Kenton. Our goals are simple: we want all our students to lead happy, healthy and successful lives and to be positive contributors to the local and global communities.
Our Curriculum Overview document details our curriculum rationale, the Kenton Learning Cycle and the student learning experience at Kenton School.
Details of our remote learning platform including video instructions are available on our Kenton Learning Zone page
Student learning journeys are linked to below and show the units students study each year in all subjects including PSHE and Careers. Some subjects will show a seven-year journey reflecting the aspiration that when students join us at the end of Key Stage 2, they could be studying that subject through to the end of Sixth Form and beyond.
The Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 links will direct you to pages from our KS4 and Post-16 Prospectuses giving more details about specific courses.
At the Kenton Learning Zone students and parents can access more detailed versions of our learning journeys as well as knowledge organisers which detail the core knowledge to be learnt in each unit.

Learning journeys below may have been adapted for the 2021/22 academic year to ensure that necessary "building block" knowledge taught during the Covid-19 pandemic is secure before covering new content.
Kenton School is committed to the principle that every member of the school community is entitled to equal opportunities and treatment, irrespective of ethnic or national origin, race, gender, physical disability, sexual orientation, social background or religion and this is reflected in our curriculum offer.
