Curriculum Subjects

At Rudheath Senior Academy we are relentless about making memories and creating remarkable experiences for children that will last a lifetime.

Our Mission

Opening Children’s Eyes to the Wonderful World of Possibility.

Our Values

Excellence: 1% improvement and 100% responsibility every day.

Kindness: No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

Our Vision

  • RSA will be an oversubscribed school of choice at the heart of the Northwich community where every student, staff member and parent is proud to belong to.
  • RSA will be relentlessly ambitious about a curriculum that leads to excellent outcomes and careers, creating remarkable experiences and making memories that last a lifetime.
  • RSA will be continuously driven about nurturing resilient, literate and articulate young people, who will be creative, confident and compassionate as they make their distinct mark on the world.

We believe all children should have the opportunity to understand the purpose of what they are learning and why they are learning it. Our school ethos of excellence and kindness is embedded into all aspects of the school curriculum.

We also recognise the importance of learning beyond the classroom. This will encourage all children to see the world of possibilities beyond their normal taught environment. Examples of such opportunities include: Guest Speaker, Trips and Visits, Duke of Edinburgh Award, Science Experiments and Theatre Productions. This will support our students in their own personal development.

Our curriculum is broad and balanced; we place equal value on academic, creative and technical subjects. Therefore, all students have the opportunity to study English, Maths, Science, Modern Foreign Languages, History, Geography, PE and ICT/Computing, Music, Drama, Art, Design and Technology, and Food Technology. Below you will find more information about our subjects.
