The curriculum at The Henry Cort Community College is designed to provide all students with a high quality education appropriate to their needs in order to prepare them academically, socially and personally for the opportunities, challenges and responsibilities of further or higher education, employment and adult life.

We believe all our students are entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum that challenges their individual abilities; is relevant to their experience and present needs; is inclusive; has application and value in the world outside the college and promotes traditional British values.  The recognition of students as individuals demands approaches to teaching and learning that will engage and enthuse all our young people, including those with special educational needs.  Promoting high quality teaching and learning is the college’s highest priority.  Information, communication, new media and digital technologies are integral tools of teaching and learning in all curriculum areas.
