Curriculum

At Fullhurst Community College, we offer a broad and balanced curriculum in an aim to develop confident, responsible and successful young people. We are proud of our unique context and the richness this brings to our curriculum offer. We want our students to learn a broad selection of subjects in depth in order to allow them to open doors and grasp hold of their hopes and dreams for the future. Our curriculum is well planned and progressive and seeks to build on the prior knowledge of students, make links and develop their understanding in all areas of their learning whilst addressing the knowledge gaps students may join us with; given the wide range of different starting points our students have from our feeder schools.. 

Below is an outline of what we offer at each year group. Further detail regarding the curriculum covered by individual subjects can be found by visiting faculty pages. If you would like more information about the curriculum at Fullhurst Community College, please contact main reception.
