Our Learning

 At Willow, we aim to have a fun and exciting curriculum in a stimulating environment. Through the delivery of our curriculum subjects we promote pupil’s spiritual, moral and cultural development and provide learning opportunities for our pupils in our local area and through extended learning. We have a creative curriculum which means that our subjects are all based around a topic which motivates and enthuses our pupils. We include termly trips and workshops wherever possible to broaden our pupils’ skills through interactive activities and from learning from subject specialists. Have a look at which topics Willow pupils will be studying this year.
