Teaching & Learning

Meet the Departments

The school aims to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all pupils so that they can fully develop their talents. We place a strong emphasis on the core subjects of English, maths and science. At the same time we recognise that every child should be given the opportunity to explore their interest in the arts, humanities, languages and sport. We believe that our curriculum reflects this and that as a consequence pupils at Balcarras make outstanding progress.
