At Baxter College, our purpose is to empower all of our students to take responsibility for their own learning and unlock their potential by providing them with a range of opportunities to prepare them for their next steps. We deliver a creative and interactive curriculum for our students which supports the development of well-rounded individuals.
We run an 8 period day, with each being 40 minutes in length (although some lessons are 'double', being 80 minutes per period). We believe Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 pupils should experience the broadest curriculum possible with exposure to a range of subjects. KS3 curriculum is a broad and balanced offer for all students, taught by specialist teachers through which they develop skills, knowledge and understanding and are then able to make informed choices about their KS4 curriculum which they start in Year 10.
