At Culcheth High School we aim to provide all our students with learning experiences of the highest order and the richest curriculum diet possible.  In Key Stage 3 all students will follow the full range of National Curriculum subjects.  At Key Stage 4 the curriculum will be personalised according to students’ needs.  Most students are encouraged to follow subjects leading to the English Baccalaureate (that is: English, Mathematics, Science, History or Geography and a Modern Foreign Language).  However, this may not be suitable for all and in addition to the core subjects, students can choose from a range of options.  Individual options will be ‘guided’ and students supported in their choice of subjects.  There will be opportunities for some students to study vocational courses ‘off-site’.
