Curriculum Intent


Knole labels giving key information

At Knole Academy our fundamental purpose is to:

  • Ensure that all learners achieve the highest standards in everything they do.
  • Instil a love of learning so all students make good progress and achieve excellence.
  • Develop confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
  • Grow responsible citizens who can make a positive contribution to the global society.

In order to achieve these outcomes it is essential that the curriculum:

  • Creates a culture that challenges all learners, through aspiration and high achievement, to be the best they can be.
  • Allows everyone to experience success within a broad and balanced programme.
  • Raises standards of attainment. 
  • Is appropriate and relevant to our students now, and prepares them for their future.

Therefore we ensure that:

  • Students are able to make accelerated progress over the 7 years of their time at the academy.
  • Additional time is given to English and Mathematics to ensure students have the essential skills needed for life and to access the full curriculum.
  • Targeted support and additional challenge enables all students to make at least national rates of progress.
  • Additional time is available for sports, arts, interventions and master classes through an embedded co-curricular programme.

We expect from students:

  • A commitment to work hard and to be aspirational.
  • Self-reliance, resilience and responsibility for their learning.
  • Respect and tolerance for all members of the academy community and beyond.
