Our Curriculum

The mission of St. Oscar Romero Catholic School is to help every individual to achieve the best that they can through giving witness to the way of life inspired by Christ and taught by his Church. 

At St. Oscar Romero Catholic School, our approach to the curriculum is underpinned by our school mission. Our mission unifies our community and our curriculum is rooted in excellence with the central belief that everyone is capable of greatness, is uniquely gifted, and that our role is to enable every student entrusted to our care to fulfil their God-given potential.

We consider the word curriculum as the ‘totality’ of a child’s experience with us at St Oscar Romero Catholic School, both within and beyond the classroom. 

We are proud of our excellent academic record and the exam results that our students achieve year-on-year. However, we place equal value on the holistic development of our students through a comprehensive range of enrichment/extra-curricular opportunities beyond the classroom, that extend the child’s experience at school, enabling them to develop a range of non-cognitive skills. 

We are proud to offer a broad and balanced range of qualifications at both Key Stage 3 and 4, with each of our subjects lead by experienced and highly skilled Subject Leaders, who regularly and critically review their curriculums, to ensure best practice, resourcing and research evidence to support teaching and learning.

For their first three years, pupils study a wide range of subjects incorporating: Religious Education, Maths, English, Science, History, Design Technology, Geography, a Modern Foreign Language (French or Spanish), Computing, PE, Drama, Music, Art and Dance.

In Years 10 and 11, the pupils are offered an entitlement curriculum. This curriculum has been revised to embrace the key themes of opportunity and excellence.  Enterprise and Work Related Learning opportunities form a further strand of the entitlement curriculum.  All pupils follow a common core of subjects which include:

  • Religious Education
  • English Language and English Literature
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Physical Education
  • Option subjects
    • Art

    • Design Technology
    • Enterprise BTEC
    • Geography
    • History
    • Modern Foreign Language

We believe that an outstanding curriculum should nurture a child’s academic, artistic, creative, physical and spiritual development and that the experiences our students gain with us will enable them to leave well-qualified and well-rounded ready to make their unique mark in today’s world.
