At Grove Wood, we strive to provide our pupils with an exciting, engaging and creative curriculum. Our curriculum enables our children to move confidently onto the next stage in their educational journey providing both breadth and depth into stimulating learning experiences. We seek to provide our children with inspirational opportunities in academic, sporting and arts areas, promoting excellence across these three disciplines.
Overall, we seek to inspire our children to be lifelong learners; engaging and exploring the world around them - both within and beyond our school gates.
If you would like to find out more about our curriculum, please ask for Mrs Smith, Deputy Headteacher.
