Dogsthorpe Academy



We have constructed a curriculum that is ambitious and designed to provide all pupils with the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. Our curriculum is coherently planned and sequenced towards cumulatively sufficient knowledge and skills for the future.

We follow the statutory national curriculum which sets out in programmes of study, on the basis of key stages, subject content for those subjects that should be taught to all pupils. Our pupils study a full and broad curriculum, enhanced by a range of rich extra curricular experiences. 

We hold the view that from the moment a child enters our academy, we have a responsibility to nurture and develop her/him through both academic rigour and the building of character so that each of our pupils can be successful in their future life. We aim to ensure that pupils develop a range of attitudes and characteristics that will define them as positive individuals who are able to contribute constructively to society.
