Curriculum

Our students experience a modern, world-class curriculum that will inspire, challenge and prepare them for their future as adults in the 21st Century.

Students at Blackburn Central High School acquire the skills, knowledge, understanding, values and attitudes necessary to achieve and develop into successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens who will make a positive contribution to society.

All students are offered a challenging curriculum appropriate to their abilities and needs. Every student has the opportunity to take part in learning outside the confines of the classroom, e.g. field work, residential visits, vocational visits, and external speakers.

Social and emotional aspects of learning are incorporated and cross-curricular themes are delivered, in part, through cross-curricular days.

All students study personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education. This usually takes the form of 2 half-days per term where students are break off from their normal timetable to study a PSHE topic in detail.

During Year 7 and 8 students also take part in the Heart Curriculum, where key ideas and skills are incorporated into relevant lessons.

More information on the content of the curriculum students at Blackburn Central High School follow in each academic year and for every subject is available on each subject's page.
