Curriculum Overview

We aim to inspire, build confidence and prepare our students for life and work through a broad and balanced curriculum that is built on the interdependency of knowledge and skills.


At the heart of any school’s success is the quality of its teaching. There is frequent discussion among colleagues who share good practice and strive for continual improvement in students learning experience. All members of staff have the common goal of aspiring to provide an excellent level of education for all students that takes into account the needs, aptitudes and abilities of every individual.

Lessons are designed to engage students interest, provide support when needed and to encourage reflective independence, knowing that everyone will, at some point, need to make her or his way in the world.


Whatever a student’s aptitudes and abilities happen to be, The Chase identifies and nurtures these so that everyone’s potential is fulfilled. Most will progress to our Sixth Form, while others will follow programmes of study elsewhere if this is right for them, leading to university, higher level apprenticeships or employment. All of this is achieved in a friendly, safe and ordered family environment. The broad and balanced curriculum at The Chase is designed to keep students’ options open for as long as possible at all Key Stages.
