The Curriculum

The heart of what we do

All students at Isambard can expect to experience a wide variety of lessons and learning styles. Our teachers have excellent subject knowledge and lessons are designed to stimulate and inspire. Departments often link up to provide cross-curricular experiences that encourage lateral thinking and demonstrate that no subject exists in isolation.

Welcome

to Isambard Community School

Isambard provides a rich, extensive curriculum. This offers a plethora of opportunities to challenge students in order to maximise their personal development so they are equipped to access the career pathway of their choosing. In this rapidly changing world we recognise that people no longer have a job for life and so we focus on the development of transferable skills and creativity so that our students develop resourcefulness and resilience.

We have high expectations of students in terms of their attitude to learning and their behaviour. We instil confidence through the provision of a wide range of leadership and extra-curricular opportunities through sport, the arts and outdoor pursuits such as the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme.

We work closely with our partner primaries to ensure students feel supported and happy during their transition to us. We are proud of our pastoral system which ensures all our students are welcomed into an inclusive, caring environment where they can thrive.

Isambard not only provides students with high quality teaching but also recognises the importance of student welfare, care and guidance. Our strong pastoral ethos includes an emphasis on student voice.

Our state-of-the-art facilities include a fully functioning television studio and radio station where students can experience the use of specialist, professional equipment whilst developing new media skills. Each classroom has an interactive smart board and plasma screens in the wings keep students abreast of news and upcoming events.

This website will give you a flavour of our school but please remember that our doors are always open to anyone who would like to come in and have a look around. There are many opportunities for parents and carers to participate in the life of the school and assist with their child’s progress. We value discussion with parents and members of our community, if you have any views and feedback we would be keen to hear it.

No end of possibilities...
