At SSSC our Theme Curriculum is a combined selection of subjects that are delivered uniquely by incorporating four tailored foundation subjects through one thematic approach.

We have four subjects within theme at KS3. Each group will access Media, Drama, Food Technology and Art for a minimum of three full half terms throughout an academic year.

The thematic approach developed through Theme allows students a variety of cross curricular links and the opportunity to partake in regular educational visits and study sensitive and essential life skill topics.
