At the New Forest Small School we have carefully developed our own curriculum. This has involved adapting the National Curriculum to provide a richer and more thorough educational environment for our pupils whilst ensuring that the school’s philosophy is not compromised. Some subjects, such as the core subjects of English, Maths and Science, remain fairly faithful to the National Curriculum, However other subjects such as History are significantly different as we teach History chronologically.

We believe that school’s should provide a balanced and wide ranging curriculum throughout a child’s education. Subsequently all subjects listed below are taught all year round and are for all primary and secondary pupils.

The school follows the four key stages –

Key Stage 1 – The Kindergarten

Key Stage 2 – The Primary Classes

Key Stage 3 – The Pre-GCSE Secondary Classes

Key Stage 4 – GCSE Secondary Classes

The subject overviews below cover Key Stages 2 to 4.
