Launch of a new Curriculum at Rose Hill School

Curriculum at Rose Hill School

Rose Hill School has this September launched their new curriculum, Curriculum 2020. The new framework has been designed over the last 18 months using feedback from universities and the employment sector, international trends in education, a breadth of educational research findings and consultation with local senior schools.

Philippa Lang-Daly, Deputy Head and the project lead for Curriculum 2020 said “the abilities to think creatively and critically; problem solve and use initiative; mediate and negotiate; be resilient and empathetic are just a few of a range of key skills which are now given equal importance to academic achievement. Universities and employers are clear that academic excellence alone is now insufficient for personal and professional success in the modern world”.

The curriculum framework is comprised of three key concepts – the Acquisition of Knowledge, the Application of Knowledge and Assessment Of and For Learning. The curriculum will enable staff to assess pupils’ learning in many different ways, drawing out individual pupils’ intelligences, which do not always come to the fore during a written test. Teachers will help pupils to identify their talents, and track their own progress through personal learning portfolios.

Project work and immersive learning activities will encourage the development of collaborative learning skills, presentation and research skills. Outdoor learning activities will be regular events, and pupils will develop a greater understanding of their place in the world and all they can do to make a positive global impact.
