CURRICULUM

At Ockbrook School we facilitate the all round development of our students,
both academically and personally. We prepare them so that they leave
us ready to embrace life beyond school and all that it holds for them.

Achieving these goals demands that we invest in, and are equipped with, the
most modern teaching methodologies and resources. We view our campus as
a dynamic environment where continuous investment in staff development,
learning facilities and resources enables our students to enjoy the best that
learning has to offer.

LEAVERS’ DESTINATIONS

The majority of our students go on to study at University, many of whom gain
a place at one of the Russell Group universities but all progress to a well
chosen institute that fits their own individual needs and aspirations.

Throughout the different key stages of the school there is strong emphasis on
practical careers advice and in particular, in the sixth form, the university
application process. Planning and researching begin early, and a well-timed
schedule of information evenings, careers fairs and higher education events
thoroughly prepares our students for their future career choices.
