Curriculum Intent

The Triple Crown Centre is committed to providing a curriculum that promotes high expectations, a passion for life-long learning and ambition for the future.

We endeavour to recognise and develop the talents and potential of each and every young person, irrespective of their starting points, whilst championing and celebrating distance travelled and achievement for all in its widest sense.

Working in collaboration with, for example; our students, their families, students’ mainstream schools and outside agencies is indigenous to our curriculum design as we:

  • Encourage our young people to re-engage with education
  • Ensure the previous disruption to a young person’s learning before joining us is not a barrier to the achievement of potential in its widest sense
  • Strengthen our strive to address gaps in students’ knowledge and skills
  • Establish the appropriate and relevant support our students deserve
  • Develop re-integration programmes that support students returning to a mainstream school, when this is deemed appropriate

We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum, with students developing knowledge, understanding and skills through as wide a range of learning experiences as possible in our small school.

Integral to this is the promotion of a growth mind-set culture of resilience, hard work, determination and responsibility.

We want our learners to be thoughtful, adventurous and academically ambitious young people who are both creative and critical thinkers, with investigative and enquiring minds.

We acknowledge the vital importance of developing students’ cultural capital, including a rich knowledge and understanding of vocabulary.

The Triple Crown Centre curriculum addresses positive social and emotional development and learning, to develop strength of character that empowers our young people to:

  • Seize life’s opportunities and be determined to overcome inevitable difficulties and challenges
  • Embrace and adapt to change
  • Make good personal choices
  • Grow in self-respect and self-control; confidence, self-esteem and independence
  • Champion mutual respect, support and trust so everyone can achieve their best

We aim to promote physically and mentally healthy lifestyles – a sense of well-being for all.

Our curriculum is planned to empower students with the knowledge, skills and understanding to be able to keep themselves, and others, safe.

We aspire for every student to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to secure a future in education, training or the workplace.

We are passionate about promoting social mobility and equality and, for our school, this includes addressing the barriers to learning previously faced by our young people, whilst also preparing them for the next stage of education, employment or training.

Students at The Triple Crown Centre access a curriculum that promotes fundamental British values (see British Values statement and information).

This includes:

  • An understanding of what qualities are needed to become respectful members of the community
  • An awareness of rights and responsibilities
  • Respect and celebration of similarities and differences
  • Active participation in decision making process
  • An appreciation of, and responsible attitude towards, their environment and surroundings.
  • Skills and character attributes to thrive and make positive contributions to their local, national and global communities

We are committed to empowering our young people to be able to appreciate and participate in the full richness of the human experience and ensuring they are fully prepared for life in modern Britain.
