The vision for the curriculum at Heathfield is one of ambition and breadth; to ensure a high quality experience bespoke to our students, taking account of their starting point and the expertise of our staff. The curriculum is designed to develop the knowledge and characteristics they need to be able to access, succeed and thrive at the highest levels (Excellence as a habit)
This echoes the overarching goals of the College. The specific intent of the curriculum is clearly set out in the architecture of Goals, Curriculum Maps and Schemes of Learning for each subject. This is embedded in College, department and subject specific training. It is revisited regularly with a clear aim to “keep the main thing the main thing” – that is a high quality curriculum implemented through research informed pedagogy.
