The broad and balanced curriculum at Gilsland School is progressive, rich in vocabulary and in knowledge and is approached through the CUSP Curriculum (Curriculum by Unity Schools Partnership). Children are taught in a fun and engaging way that suits the individual needs of each child and gives them the opportunity to grow to be successful, confident and resilient. Our school has strong community links and sits in a wonderful location on Hadrian's Wall which influences the teaching and learning. Their natural curiosity about their local environment is fostered through a creative and ambitious curriculum which excites and challenges. Our curriculum nurtures and prepares children educationally, socially, morally and physically for their continuing learning journey where doors will be opened, rather than closed, to future success.
