With the new curriculum being put in place from September 2019, Widden is reviewing and developing the structure and content of the school curriculum. English, Maths and Science are considered the core subjects and the foundation subjects are: History, Geography, Religious Education, Computing, Modern Foreign Languages, Music, Art and Design Technology and Physical Education.
As our school mission statement states, our approach will be:
Opening doors to exciting learning, the wider world and a fulfilled future
