JMA’s curriculum encourages students to develop a thirst for academic knowledge and development and appreciation of artistic, creative, or sporting talent. The curriculum covers a breadth of subjects and supports academic and physical development for all our students. Alongside the taught curriculum, extracurricular activities, assemblies, and pastoral support, students are given opportunities for their spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development. Our students are given every opportunity to succeed through this curriculum, which promotes the Academy values and the British values of respect, tolerance, equality, and fairness.
To ensure that our students acquire knowledge quickly and efficiently, a curriculum and assessment map has been produced for each subject area. This outlines how the curriculum fits together and how what is taught in lessons is equipping students to become experts in their subjects and to take them forward to study at university, should they want to. The curriculum area maps are the building blocks for every subject and allow for detailed and rigorous schemes of learning and assessments to be planned and delivered.
