Curriculum

Introduction to the HIAC Curriculum

The curriculum will focus on firstly on making sure that students develop a deep body of knowledge. This knowledge will primarily come from the national curriculum. The focus in our curriculum planning will be the development of subject-specific disciplinary knowledge. We then plan to ensure that students develop the subject skills needed to apply and make sense of what the knowledge that they have gained.

The HIAC Curriculum intends to prepare our students, in rapidly changing world, for the next step in their lives. To encourage our develop confidence and talent in our students to ensure they are well-equipped to excel in higher or further education, training, and ready to meet the challenges of employment.

We believe that the HIAC curriculum should provide students with a broad range of educational experiences and opportunities. Through the academic curriculum and wider school life, we intend to guarantee that all HIAC students continue their development into well-rounded citizens, capable of contributing positively to their communities.
