The rationale for the curriculum at Renfrew High School has been developed in consultation with staff, learners, parents and partners. It sets out what we want our young people to experience and achieve and is summarised as “A better future for ourselves as individuals, as a community and as a planet”
Our curriculum will:
- provide learners with a wide variety of relevant, challenging and enjoyable learning opportunities and experiences
- support learners to attain and achieve to their highest potential
- develop our learners’ skills, talents and personalities to prepare them for learning, life and work beyond school as happy, confident and responsible people who enjoy success in a sustained positive destination
The curriculum allows learners to further their knowledge and understanding of various subjects and concepts. It also develops a wide range of personal skills and qualities which will help them in learning, life and work.
We are particularly interested in growing meta-skills and ensuring our young people are able to articulate their development in this as they progress through school and beyond into their chosen next steps.
