At Haven Hub International Academy (HHIA), we pride ourselves on the breadth of our curriculum. We strive to provide a broad, balanced, challenging, creative and highly enjoyable curriculum which not only incorporates the National Curriculum but celebrates the ideas and experiences of every learner. Our schemes of work reflect the content and challenge of the curriculum. Teachers have received training in key areas of curriculum change and are ready to provide outstanding curriculum provision.
The curriculum will be taught with the consideration of the needs of all learners (see our SEND and Inclusion Policy). Our curriculum will be exciting and will inspire children to nurture a passion for learning.
At HHIA, the curriculum we have developed is based on fostering a desire for lifelong learning and ensuring that students are well prepared for identified academic examinations. The curriculum and courses are offered to cater for a range of assessments: 11+, Cambridge, IGCE, AQA, Exdecel, ZIMSEC, among other examination boards.
As an institution, we recognise the importance of English and Maths teaching to open up other curriculum areas. Therefore a significant emphasis is placed on these areas, in addition to the regular maths and English sessions. Deliberate cross-curricular links are utilised to develop English and maths skills in a range of contexts. In addition, HHIA offers small groups and individual programmes for Science, Chemistry, Physics, Modern Foreign Languages, Geography, History, Art, and General Knowledge.
We create opportunities for students to experience and excel in a range of activities that enhance and extend their knowledge and skills. Students have opportunities to apply both theoretical and practical skills through personalised and prioritised teaching and learning opportunities. Students have opportunities to share their learning, their parents and carers and other learners through online external exhibitions, performances, and competitions.
The curriculum developed at HHIA aims to develop students’ independence, motivate learners and instil their sense of responsibility as global citizens. This philosophy is at the heart of all our teaching and learning.
