Learning and Curriculum

John Keble School prides itself on its wide, rich curriculum. Students receive high quality teaching which meets their needs.  The curriculum is engaging, relevant, stimulating and inspiring. We encourage independent learning and self-reflection in order to prepare our students for a future we cannot see, supporting them as they learn to problem-solve, think and develop confidence in their unique abilities.

Music, PE and Spanish are taught by specialist teachers, ensuring high quality opportunities for all. Alongside the variety of curriculum subjects, there are a wide choice of after school clubs that interest students. These have a high take up and they are extremely popular.

Our academic results are good. At the end of Year 6 (Key Stage 2) in 2019, 58% of children reached the Nationally Expected Standard in reading, writing and maths. Further details of our performance data is presented under the 'statutory information' section in 'about us'.

The well-balanced curriculum is carefully matched to pupils’ needs, so that they can readily develop new interests and skills. For example, provision for Spanish, art, music, physical education, sports, school trips and residential activities has enabled them to become more confident and secure learners.
