The Year 7 Learning Journey: What is the Brannel Curriculum?

Our curriculum vision is for a world class school where every student, through personalised learning and clear goals, will stretch their boundaries and learn more than they thought possible.

We are taking inspiration from the successful Kunskapsskolan (KED) approach developed originally in Sweden. Students are supported to achieve their learning goals through academic coaching and a transparent curriculum, supported by technology, which allows them to move at their pace and depth to meet their personal goals. As part of the international KED partnership of schools we also have opportunities to combine experiences and exchange from and with other communities and countries.

Transition to Brannel School

We understand that the transition from primary to secondary school can be exciting but sometimes a little scary, which is why we make sure it’s as smooth as possible.

Our subject departments host a series of transition days to help your child meet their new teachers and get an idea of what lessons at Brannel will be like.

We invite new students and their parents to an induction evening to share important information about starting secondary school.

During the summer, our holiday activity programme provides an opportunity to take part in challenges and activities on the school site, get to know the school building and meet new friends.
