Where: Golborne and Shevington High Schools, Wigan
Cost: A very limited number of free places available first come, first serve for WE members.
Who is it for: Participants in WE’s Stand Out Schools Initiative and Leading a Whole Education at secondary
Discover how two Whole Education schools in Wigan have taken very different, innovative approaches to curriculum design.
- Golborne High School offers a curriculum that is informed by a deep understanding of their context and community. Using databases designed for marketing companies they developed a curriculum that responds to local need by including financial literacy education and a ‘vocational for all’. Discover more in our interview with Assistant Headteacher Charlotte Norwood.
- Shevington High School has been deeply influenced by the Swedish Kunskapsskolan model to build a curriculum that explicitly focuses on building student independence and agency. You can read more about approaches they used in their ‘Swedish week’ included no school bell and ‘Fika’ in the Headteacher’s spotlight.
This visit will be an opportunity to see the schools, learn how they implemented their stand out approach, and talk to students and staff.
