We are looking for 2 practitioners to explore in collaboration with group of 20 year 9 pupils and their two teachers, how we can make our new thematic curriculum more exciting and relevant.
For the new thematic curriculum we have decided to put together some unusual subject combinations and now we are looking for practitioners who can help us push this experiment even further. We want to show that excellent learning, can be exciting and motivating for staff and pupils alike.
