At Davenant, our motto is Nurturing Mind, Body and Spirit and we believe that is at the core of our curriculum vision. We aim for a curriculum that engages learners and encourages an independent love of learning. Students should have a broad understanding of many subjects and how they interconnect. Performing and Creative Arts and Sport are valued in all Key stages to compliment the core and Ebacc subjects so students get opportunities to develop their creativity and confidence.  As part of our Christian foundation all students take full course RE in year 10 to enhance their understanding of other faiths as well as their own. 

Students at Davenant get a broad selection of GCSEs and A Levels to choose from where we both encourage Ebacc and creative subjects but personalising the learning for all students of differing abilities is a priority.

Learning outside the classroom is an essential part of being a student at Davenant. There is a comprehensive choice of extracurricular activities to choose from including orchestra, sports teams, Christian Union, Duke of Edinburgh as well as many others to suit all.

Trips and visits enrich the curriculum and with over 100 trips going out each year there is something for everyone. From trips to Russia and Zambia, Epping Forest and London students can gain new learning experiences outside the school environment. We encourage all students to take part in these extra curriculum opportunities.

Our curriculum aims to support students in their academic journey, but also enabling them to enhance their God given talents whatever they may be. Building confident young adults who have the resilience and strength of character to be successful in an ever-changing world is Davenant’s aim and ambition for all.

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire’
