All-through curriculum

At Trinity, all students are entitled to a curriculum and to the powerful knowledge which will open doors and maximise life chances. Our all-through, carefully sequenced and deliberately mapped curriculum helps students to achieve our mission of succeeding at university, or a real alternative, thrive in a top job and have a great life. It is founded on evidence-based research from cognitive science about memory, forgetting and retrieval practice to develop automaticity and fluency across subject domains.

Our curriculum is led by, collaborated on and delivered by high-quality subject specialists to create the richest narrative possible for our students. Our curriculum embraces and values the most powerful knowledge from a variety of cultures and traditions and is built on year upon year from key stage one all the way through to key stage four. Both declarative knowledge (the what) and procedural knowledge (the how) is specified in detail through 100% sheets which supports knowledge to be remembered not merely encountered.

At each phase, our curriculum focuses on closing gaps, early intervention, and developing the core literacy and numeracy skills for success at that stage. As such, by the end of year 11, our students will both be prepared thoroughly for national assessment and to acquire the sufficient knowledge of the wider domain to fully enable further study.

At Trinity Chapeltown, we enhance the yearning for knowledge which all children are naturally born with and seek to maximise every opportunity to maximise attainment, develop character and build cultural capital.

As a Dixons academy, our curriculum is aligned to a common set of Trust-wide principles which are underpinned by our mission to challenge educational and social disadvantage in the North.  Our curriculum principles are available to read in full in the 'Why Dixons? section of the Dixons Academies Trust website.
