Curriculum Rationale


St Thomas More Language College provides a broad and balanced curriculum suitable for students of all abilities.
Students' baseline data is assessed at the beginning of Year 7 to highlight individual strengths and weaknesses in literacy and numeracy and support is identified for EAL, SEN and Gifted & Talented groups. Extra timetable support is provided during Year 7 to ensure no child is left behind and that they are prepared for their Year 8 curriculum.
The data recorded in Years 7 and Year 8 assists the College in making provision to accommodate the needs of all students from Year 9 onwards. The range of our courses includes the traditional GCSEs, the E-Baccalaureate, OCR Nationals, Vocational courses and BTEC.

The college's exceptionally strong contribution to partnership working has helped it develop an increasingly broad range of curriculum options that meet students' needs and aspirations.


The languages specialism considerably enhances the curriculum by enabling students to become competent in a wide range of languages, and by exposing them to a wealth of international opportunities.


The specialism has a pronounced impact on teaching and learning across the college and in local schools.
