The Secondary Curriculum: Learning for All

At Blanche Nevile secondary we plan the curriculum to meet the needs of all our children. Students follow the National Curriculum, as well as careers education and personal and social development education. We also focus very specifically on developing literacy, numeracy and ICT skills across the curriculum.  Click on the attached KS3 Overview for more details.

Teaching and Learning

Students learn through their experiences and by being taught. They learn most effectively when they feel valued, when they are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and when they are actively involved in the learning process. At Blanche Nevile School we use a range of teaching and learning strategies to help students of all ages and needs to increase and maintain their motivation and to create a challenging, stimulating and rewarding learning environment in which each and every student can succeed.


Teaching staff set regular and appropriate homework according to the published homework schedule. Homework enables students to consolidate and extend work covered in lessons, to carry out private study and research and to develop good study habits. Further information about this can be found in the school homework policy.

Although we are a non-uniform school, our children wear Fortismere’s, (our Partnership School) PE kit which can be ordered online here.
