A Knowledge-Rich Curriculum

A Knowledge-Rich Curriculum

We believe that a subject-centred academic curriculum which builds cultural capital is the best way to prepare students for the future and achieve social justice in society. As ED Hirsch puts it, “The ability to act and communicate effectively within the cultural commons is a requisite to the success of any citizen, with success defined minimally as the ability to earn a good living, participate in democratic self-government, and meet every citizen as an equal.” [1]

Indeed enabling students to ‘meet every citizen as an equal,’ – an agenda synonymous with our vision – is the key driver in the design of our knowledge rich curriculum.
