Academic: Padworth’s curriculum aims to contribute effectively to every student’s intellectual, physical and personal development according to their age and ability. We prepare every student for the next stage of education, training or employment and provide the skills needed for life-long learning. Padworth offers choice and flexibility to deliver a well-balanced and broad-based curriculum with a strong academic core. We assist each student to choose the right subjects in relation to their abilities and aspirations. Central to the success of our approach is the individual support given to each student by their teachers. This enables them to establish trusting relationships which we believe draws out the best in every student and encourages them to fulfil their academic potential.
