Even in this difficult time of pandemic, we have managed to maintain a broad and balanced curriculum, with key stage 3 learners accessing the specialist facilities on a rotational basis. In addition to our subject-based curriculum, our character education has been introduced throughout our all-through school as its DNA from reception through to Year 13. This character curriculum helps to prepare children for future learning and their adult lives. Focusing on the characteristics of Responsibility, Collaboration, Respect, Care, Excellence and Aspiration, our DNA of NIA complements our subject curriculum and our House system.
