The Bythams SchoolOur Curriculum

At The Bythams we have adopted a Learning Challenge Curriculum where children’s learning is creative and cross-curricular. If you wish to learn more about the school curriculum, please contact the school office to make an appointment.

Our pupils learn, practice, combine, develop and refine a wide range of skills in their work across the National Curriculum. Some of these skills are subject specific and some are common to several subjects.
