Learning at Kantor King Solomon High School
The curriculum the school follows is largely based on the national curriculum and a desire to ensure our ethos is part of everything we do. The school aims to create students who value learning, charity and community and who will play an active and constructive part in their local and global communities. In July the school began a whole school curriculum review, consulting all stakeholders on our curriculum and we plan to implement our new curriculum in September 2020.
In addition to the formal curriculum students participate in a wide range of activities through the Kehila Department and other extracurricular opportunities for example many Sports clubs, our Transport Ambassadors, STEM club and Dungeons and Dragons. Students also have the opportunity to play a leadership role in our school through our Haderech allowing students the opportunity to participate in student voice, join the student council or lead on key issues that are important to them. Our Jewish Studies department also leads on opportunities for students to consider their religion, identity and context through clubs such as lunch and learn across all year groups.
Additionally, all students in all year groups participate in Tefila every day during registration which provides them with a time to reflect on key Jewish teachings and their context in our modern and diverse society as well as allowing all students a moment of silence with which to start the day.
