A few years ago I compiled a set of curriculum models from 70 grammar schools – each one was unique, albeit with lots of common features. It was fascinating to see all the subtle differences. I repeated this in 2014 collecting 18 models for schools of different kinds – available through the link above.
With all the curriculum changes now underway, I’m keen to see what people’s models for 2017 look like. If you are prepared to contribute a model, please add yours by copying into a new tab on this googledocs spreadsheet. You might need to ask someone at school to do if for you – but the more examples we have, the more interesting and useful it will be. I will publish it once I’ve gathered enough.
If at all possible, please stick to the same formatting – it’s so much easier to compare if they all look the same. The easiest thing is to right click on one of the existing tabs and ‘duplicate’. Then you can rename the sheet and edit it. You can choose to add your school anonymously but it’s preferable to put your name on it. Please put new tabs on the far right and edit the features section with any quirks and variations.
If you really can’t manage matching the format, drop the key info or a link in the comments below and I’ll do it for you – as long as you include everything I’d need in your list of information.
Thanks for taking part.
Update March 15th: 27 models so far. It’s interesting to see how a 3-year KS4 is working through in several schools and how common that three-option model is with schools moving away from greater choice/breadth to focus more tightly on an 8-GCSE model giving more time to each subject. Another interesting thing is the variation of time given to core subjects.
Keep it coming.
