CURRICULUM : KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

At Hillsgrove, we believe all pupils, whatever their background, have a right to access the best that has been said and thought. This includes a variety of writers, from all parts of the world, and thinkers from all the ages. The curriculum ensures that pupils are knowledgeable enough about the world around them to transform it in the future.

The education provided at Hillsgrove is broadly traditional and academically rigorous.  We expect our pupils to be polite and respectful.  We encourage competition and allow our pupils to win and lose.  We believe that knowledge about the world is central to our pupils’ success.  Only when they have acquired this knowledge will they be ready to lead and participate as full citizens.

 

Pupils are taught the background and context of what they are learning so that they can understand and make connections easily.  This is supported in History, Geography and Science via Knowledge Organisers which are sent home termly, enabling children to pre-learn the core knowledge and develop their subject specific vocabulary so that they can use and apply this knowledge in the term ahead.

 

We believe that pupils should know how well they are doing, both in relation to themselves and to others.  Pupils sit half termly tests in Reading and Maths. They also have unit tests in History, Geography and Science, in order to assess knowledge and understanding of the key questions around a topic. Assessment at Hillsgrove is open and meaningful.

 

Hillsgrove is unique. Pupils work hard and are kind to each other. Guests visit the school and are very impressed by the maturity, kindness and motivation displayed by our pupils. To understand just how different Hillsgrove is, a visit to the school is strongly encouraged.
