Curriculum vision:

At Eastlea Community School we provide our students with the opportunities to thrive and flourish both academically and personally 

To enable all students to achieve, our curriculum is underpinned by the following principles: 

  • Ambitious – for all of our students, regardless of their starting points 
  • Sequenced / Spiral – we follow a spiral curriculum that supports retrieval practice and spaced learning 
  • Literacy – our curriculum develops literacy skills and broadens vocabulary 
  • Cultural Capital – our curriculum develops strong cultural capital by presenting students with as many experiences and opportunities as possible


KS3 is a three year pathway which we believe enables our students to experience new opportunities and provides a foundation for success at KS4 and life beyond school.  At Eastlea Community School we are fortunate enough to have a theatre, a purpose built art and Dance studio, music studios, production equipment and outstanding spaces for PE including a vast playing field. These facilities allow us to offer new opportunities in:  Music, Drama, Technology, PE, Dance and Art. We believe that a three year KS3 is critical in providing a strong basis of developing cultural capital and language development to support our students in their school career and beyond.

Students are sometimes required to access learning online or directed to specific websites to enhance and support the learning that takes place in the classroom. All of our schools use Google classroom as our online learning platform. Some subjects also direct students to additional websites which are specified in this document here
