What we teach


At Bishopstone CE School we take real pride in offering a broad and balanced curriculum that excites and develops a wide range of qualities in each and every child.

As a staff we feel that learning should not just be confined to the classroom. We like to roam outside of the school as often as appropriate.  Children need to engage in "their learning" in a wide range of situations and environments. Meeting high expectations and challenges set by not only their classroom teacher but also their peers through collaborative learning.  This extends to taking part with children from within the school cluster (Wanborough, Chiseldon, Wroughton, East Wichel, Ridgeway Secondary) through to Swindon and further afield.

This in turn will not only foster independent but also life long learning allowing all students that move through Bishopstone CE School to reach their potential in the future.

We follow the National Curriculum in all areas.  This is supplemented by a bespoke curriculum created for us by 'Dimension Curriculums'.
