Current curriculum rationale
The philosophy of The Duston School is that each pupil is entitled to a curriculum that prepares them for life’s opportunities, responsibilities and experiences. Our curriculum is designed to enable each individual to develop their maximum potential through stimulating and challenging pathways and by carefully monitoring each student’s social and academic progress. We follow a three year KS3 (Year 7 8 and 9), a two year KS4 and two year Sixth Form. We believe this gives our students every opportunity to succeed in their journey through The Duston School and prepares them for the next stage of their education, training or employment.
The school operates a two-week cycle of 60 fifty minute lessons arranged 2-2-2. Lessons are taught as both singles and doubles.
