Our curriculum is tailored to the needs of the pupils and their future aspirations, and at every level, we strive to make our pupils independent learners, well-prepared for the next stage in their development. While the National Curriculum is a useful starting point, departments adapt and enhance their programmes of study to ensure that every pupil is motivated, inspired and challenged. In addition to the core subjects of English and Mathematics, the Dragon syllabus includes Modern and Classical Languages, Science, Humanities, Music, FPE (Faith, Philosophy and Ethics), Programming, Art, Drama, Design & Technology and PE. It also includes principles and practice of philanthropy.

Classes are small and both streaming and setting are used. In this way a very individual approach can be offered to every child so that the learning style and pace is appropriate. Dragon School recognises that emotional health and academic development are interlinked, and so PSHEE forms part of the programme.

Our approach is designed for our pupils to:

  • enjoy a happy and secure learning environment where they are valued
  • develop lively, enquiring minds where they question rather than merely accept
  • acquire knowledge and understanding which will equip them for future challenges
  • obtain skills that they can transfer to other subjects or situations
