Curriculum Principles

Blaise High School offers a rich and stimulating curriculum which enables all students to fulfil their true potential. The curriculum is tailored to student needs, offering both support and challenge to all learners to ensure that every student achieves excellence. Our curriculum is broad in scope, yet also underpinned by the knowledge that a good secondary education requires a deep understanding of numeracy and literacy. To this end, we dedicate substantial time and resources to these areas. 

Throughout the curriculum, we focus on delivering knowledge effectively, assessing it rigorously and ensuring our students retain it. Finally, we believe in the importance of positive personal behaviours and attitudes to learning, without which no curriculum can be effectively delivered. 

You can find our long term plans and principles for each curriculum area at the bottom of this page and more information regarding options for years 10 and 11 can be found here.

Wider Curriculum 

Students at Blaise High School have the chance to develop their character by taking part in a wide range of clubs and activities at lunchtime, after school and over the weekend.Our wider curriculum offers opportunities from dance to origami, the Duke of Edinburgh Award to our Disney Film Club and Brainiacs. Students can also participate in a number of sporting clubs and teams, competing with other schools, or just for fun. Our Performing Arts departments run productions every year, giving students the opportunity to perform or stage manage and our Year 7 Choir celebrates annually at Gloucester Cathedral.

As students take part in each activity, they earn badges linked to our core values of Ambition, Collaboration and Inclusion.

Students have the opportunity to join our very active Student Leadership Team, where they develop their skills supporting the running of the school and representing their peers.
