Welcome to the Lindbergh Campus

The Curriculum

The Raedwald Trust pays high regard to organising pupil’s learning experiences: curriculum design always responds to individual learner’s needs and curriculum choices are regularly reviewed, with all stakeholders, so we can be confident we are providing an exceptional learning experience, every hour of every day.   Our highly personalised and flexible approach is framed by three key questions:

  1. What is the specific intention of the chosen learning programme?
  2. What is the best implementation route for the learning programme?
  3. What is the impact of the learning programme?

Against these measures, our learners thrive in an environment of high expectation.
