Here at Frogmore Community College we view the curriculum as comprising the entire planned learning experience.
We believe that we are all learning all of the time and we structure our days, weeks and terms to maximise the learning opportunities for all young people in the school. We want our students to enjoy and be engaged in learning from the minute they arrive to the minute they leave. As such, tutor periods, assemblies, subject lessons, lunchtime and after-school activities, off-site visits and various enrichment opportunities are all seen as vital parts of the school’s planned curriculum.
To view curriculum information for each subject, including how parents can help their child with their studies, please visit the Subjects area.
The Subject-based Curriculum: Key Stage 3
We recognise the tremendous wealth of knowledge, skills and understanding that our students arrive with from their time at primary school and we work hard to both celebrate this and build upon it so that students make rapid progress.
In years 7 to 9 students are taught the National Curriculum programmes of study. In addition, students study dance and drama as well as the locally agreed syllabus for RE. In year 7, students also study Opening Minds, a competence based curriculum which seeks to develop students’ skills in independent learning and help them to successfully manage the transition from primary to secondary education. The level of challenge rapidly builds over the three years so that students are fully prepared for the challenges of their examination subjects in key stage 4.

The Subject-based Curriculum: Key Stage 4
In the examined core subjects of English, maths and science, we make sure that work is effectively tailored to students’ needs and regularly review courses and specifications offered to ensure they provide the best opportunities for success for our students.
Also compulsory for all students at key stage 4 are PE, RE, Citizenship and PSHCE.
Every year we survey students to ensure that the options subjects we are offering meet the needs of the specific cohort.
Despite our small size, we work hard to offer a wide variety of subjects alongside the compulsory core.
