Our Curriculum Intent
Bourne Community College aims to prepare students for a lifelong love of learning, recognising students as individuals with unique abilities, interests and backgrounds.
We aim to provide an excellent educational experience for students by:
- Providing a broad, balanced and accessible curriculum for all students which fits their individual needs
- Providing learning opportunities which allow students to develop transferrable skills
- Fostering high aspirations and educate, inspire and enable students to access future opportunities, progressing to Further and Higher Education
- Developing students’ skills in Literacy and Numeracy to support their studies and their future pursuits
