At Sir John Nelthorpe School we strive to develop the whole person, to produce well-rounded young adults capable of developing themselves and responding positively to the demands that society will bring. The pupils’ experiences are organised to achieve the School’s Mission Statement, the requirements of the National Curriculum and to provide a broad and balanced curriculum. These experiences include programmes of study written for each subject, tutorial work and Personal, Social, Health,Citizenship & Economic education (PSHCE) and they are enriched by work-related learning, a wide range of curricular, extra-curricular, non-curricular, sporting events and visits. The programmes of study fulfil the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum.
