The curriculum at Wootton Park School focuses both on the knowledge and the skills that learners need to make outstanding process. It is built around the concept that the greater body of knowledge we have, the easier it is to learn more. Also at the forefront of the curriculum are the skills our learners need in order to use this knowledge effectively.

At Key Stage 3 (ages 11-14) we focus on English, mathematics and science. These core subjects are supplemented by a strong focus on the development of core skills in the humanities, Spanish, CPSHE, the arts,  PE and computing.

At Key stage 4 (14-16) our offer is broad, balalnaced and tailored to the individual learner. Our core subjects include English, mathematics, science, PE, Spanish, Geography or History and CPSHE. Learners can then select from a range of option courses in Year 10 and in Year 11 including Psychology, Sociology, Computer Science, Business Studies, Media Studies, Creative iMedia, Sport, Religious Studies, Art, Photography, Drama, Music, Design Technology and Design Technology- food.
