Our Mission

To ensure that every member of our All Saints family can be confident, responsible, successful and live with integrity. This will enable our scholars to be well prepared for the next phase of their journey whether that is to university or in pursuing the career of their choice.

Our Curriculum Pillars

Mastery Curriculum: Our curriculum design enables scholars to make rapid progress and develop a framework of knowledge and understanding in each subject area that provides a solid foundation for further study.

Raising Aspirations and Enrichment: Scholars understand the opportunities that a school and university education will afford. Scholars develop their passions and interests through an in-day enrichment programme.

Christian values: We welcome scholars of all faiths and none to our Church of England academy where our guiding principles are based on Christian values. We treat every scholar as an individual and we work with them and their families to develop and nurture their talents. We wish nothing less for our scholars than we would for our own families.

Our curriculum: Is Carefully sequenced: We want our scholars to have a choice to attend the best universities in the country, so we plan with this aim in mind. Is Knowledge-rich: We choose the knowledge to share with the scholars carefully to equip them with the cultural capital they need to succeed in life. Aims for Mastery: We aim for scholars to master the five years of carefully sequenced key knowledge before moving on, as we know that the more you know the more you have the capacity to know. Includes Responsive teaching: formative assessment is used continually in every single lesson, to check on the progress of the scholars through the curriculum. Includes Catch-up: We recognise that scholars joining the school need support to master the key knowledge, so we return to topics covered regularly and assess scholars’ knowledge using cumulative assessments at the end of the year Includes Wider curriculum, Enrichment and Independent Learning: Our scholar’s entitlement to a rich and varied curriculum isn’t limited to subjects traditionally studied at school.
