High quality LEARNING is central to everything we do
Learning at Siddal Moor takes place in an environment which was brand new in 2012, boasting state of the art facilities. We are proud of the fact that we have specialist teachers in all areas of the school and attract the brightest and the best teaching and support staff to work with us. We use a range of learning strategies throughout the school, ensuring that lessons are challenging, engaging and enjoyable. Learning is further enhanced through specialist tuition, school trips and out-of-hours learning opportunities.
Students at Siddal Moor follow the National Curriculum at Key Stage 3 which provides an excellent foundation for success in Years 10 and 11. At Key Stage 4, all students follow a core curriculum which comprises English, mathematics and science to GCSE level, plus physical education, personal social and health education, and religious studies. In addition, students apply to study four other courses to GCSE level or equivalent. These courses are selected from the arts, design and technology, humanities, modern foreign languages and physical education areas. We currently offer 23 different GCSE or equivalent courses of study in addition to the core subjects. Siddal Moor students leave school well equipped to take their next steps into post-16 education.
