The curriculum is framed with the intention of producing well-balanced students prepared for the responsibilities and opportunities that arise throughout life and to prepare students for the challenges of the 21st century. It extends knowledge, experience and imagination in ways which develop critical and analytical capability, awareness of moral values and capacity for enjoyment.
The students’ spiritual, moral and ethical development is addressed through the formal curriculum in a number of subjects including religious education lessons. It also occurs informally through assemblies, numerous extra-curricular activities, residential experiences and in other intangible ways which permeate the ethos of the school.
Kendrick has a full and well established PHSEE programme which is delivered to all students by their own tutors as part of the tutor/PSHEE programme. It is also delivered by specialists as a discrete subject in the upper school. Students will be prepared for their roles as citizens and follow recommended schemes of work for citizenship. All students receive careers advice and have the benefit of taking part in a well-integrated work experience programme as part of our work related and enterprise curriculum.
Every student has access to the full National Curriculum, Religious Studies, Citizenship and PSHEE. Kendrick is a grammar school and continues to offer a wide variety of subjects; in particular English Literature, a second modern foreign language, Latin and Religious Studies to public examination standard.
