Curriculum Intent

The Curriculum at TRS inspires learners for their future through its breadth and depth providing students with the knowledge, skills and experiences to make sense of the changing world, make informed choices and develop the confidence to be successful in their desired destinations.

Students at TRS are known and valued as unique individuals, each with their own personality, aspirations and challenge. Strong, positive relationships enable staff to understand their students and support them to achieve.

Learning at TRS extends beyond the classroom. The use of real world examples and first hand experiences develop curiosity and a desire to challenge their understanding and deepen learning. Built on a coherent plan for the acquisition of knowledge, understanding is evidenced through the development of skills in applying knowledge to new context and mastery demonstrated through challenge, questioning and problem solving.

Assessment at TRS provides frequent opportunities for formative feedback to ensure teaching is responsive to student need and progress is referenced against individual targets in each subject. Students are equipped with the skills, resilience, habits and independence to achieve their best.

Progress at TRS is founded on developing the core literacy and numeracy of every student. Enabling them to access the curriculum, all students receive support to read fluently and with their comprehension and application of key vocabulary.

Life at TRS is built on trust and choice. Students are empowered with responsibility and educated in effective and informed decision-making.
