Bishop Douglass Catholic School

In Pursuit Of Excellence

Curriculum

At Bishop Douglass School we provide a broad, balanced and diverse curriculum within the framework of the National Curriculum.

 We place extra emphasis on developing literacy and numeracy skills and extra time is devoted to these in Key Stages 3 and 4.  Our Highly Able programme identifies those with particular strengths and enables them to make accelerated progress.  In our bespoke mentoring programme, students are helped to develop their learning and study skills.  Our after-school extra lesson provision for examination candidates is recognised for the positive contribution it makes to examination results.  

The formal curriculum consists of twenty-five one hour periods. Four lessons take place in the morning and there is one lesson in the afternoon. Our after school curriculum consists of revision lessons for those taking public examinations and a wide variety of clubs and after-school activities. We provide supported study until 6pm with our ‘Evening Prep’.

At Key Stage 4 we offer an eclectic range of GCSE and vocational courses to suit the creative, sporting, practical and academic learner including Art, Business Studies, Design and Technology, Drama, Geography, History, Media Studies, Modern Foreign Languages, Music, Sociology and Sport.
