Our unwavering commitment to these pillars underpins every lesson we teach and every decision we make, ensuring that students at Sutton Community Academy will experience a curriculum that:

  • is enriching, ensuring all experience a rich variety of cultural, artistic and sporting activities
  • is ambitious and broad in terms of coverage, encompassing and extending upon the English National Curriculum
  • celebrates the uniqueness of our local area

  • celebrates diversity, challenges injustice and promotes equality
  • is brought to life by well-qualified, evidence-informed and passionate practitioners


Our broad and balanced curriculum offer

At Sutton Community Academy, we are proud to offer a curriculum that is unique and ambitious, with opportunities for every child to succeed.

In Spring 2021, we restructured the school day. This consolidated our subjects and provided enhanced lesson times to each period, allowing for deeper learning of knowledge and more enriched practical lessons.

Our curriculum is being supported by significant, multi-million pound investment from the Trust into our classrooms and facilities – new science labs, humanities classrooms and music and drama studios are already in use – with full renovation of all learning areas including a new community theatre planned over the next 3 years.
