The intent of our curriculum

Our Curriculum is coherently planned and sequenced across all year groups, subjects and lessons, alongside the creation of a supportive, articulate, metacognitive thinking school culture, allowing all learners to develop the knowledge, skills and cultural capital for them to succeed in life in terms of future learning and employment.
The MFG’s seven-year curriculum:
  • is constructed around THEMFG values to enhance character and cultural capital
  • is coherently sequenced to build knowledge and skills for future learning and employment
  • is challenging and inclusive to meet the personal development needs of all students
  • explicitly teaches vocabulary, oracy and reading to ensure lifelong learning

Curriculum Principles

The curriculum at The Mirfield Free Grammar School is ambitious, with the National Curriculum and EBacc at its core. We place THEMFG values at the heart of the curriculum, which will be designed to give all pupils, particularly those who are disadvantaged and those with SEND, the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.
All learners study the full curriculum in key stage 3, and we teach a broad range of subjects exemplified by the National Curriculum throughout years 7 to 9. Creative subjects are given sufficient curriculum time and are not taught on a carousel. Our curriculum is ‘spiral’ in design, which allows for revisiting of key ideas and the incremental development of knowledge, so over the course of study, teaching is designed to help pupils to remember long term the content they have been taught and to integrate new knowledge into larger ideas. Quality assurance processes check that the curriculum in each subject is coherently planned and sequenced, and that the work given enables pupils to achieve the aims and ambition of the curriculum.
