Vision & Strategy

Our vision is that curriculum at Glebelands has a clear intent to challenge aspirations, create opportunities to thrive and open minds. Will be a school which is committed to providing a curriculum that is broad, balanced, challenging and fosters a love of learning. We value the contribution that creative, practical and vocational learning brings to a child’s development alongside the traditional subjects. Every child who leaves Glebelands will have the qualifications, skills, knowledge and character to access aspirational Post-16 opportunities and to lead a life that includes positive relationships, resilience and financial independence.
