Our Curriculum Intent 

At Eastlea Community School we are proud to offer an inclusive, engaging, challenging broad and balanced curriculum. 

  • KS3 is a three year pathway which we believe enables our students to experience new opportunities and provides a foundation for success at KS4 and life beyond school.  At Eastlea Community School we are fortunate enough to have a theatre, purpose built art & dance studios, music studios, production equipment and outstanding spaces for PE including a vast playing field. These facilities allow us to offer new opportunities in:  Music, Drama, Technology, PE, Dance and Art. We believe that a three year KS3 is critical in providing a strong basis of developing cultural capital and language development to support our students in their school career and beyond.


  • KS4 is an inclusive and challenging two year pathway. We offer academic choices (GCSE) and more practical options such as the ASDAN Life Skills course and Entry level certificate in English, maths and science. Our SEND students are fully involved in school life and are supported through our curriculum which allows students to attend mainstream subjects and still attend classes which are tailored to their specific needs.  


  • Our curriculum offers challenge through various opportunities such as the triple science GCSEs, further maths, Curiosity Club, the ‘Brilliant Club’ as well as chances to explore life beyond the classroom and the curriculum through the ‘Duke of Edinburgh’ award.

At Eastlea we are committed to promoting  the importance of inclusivity, community and safety in our school and this is reflected in our curriculum. Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE) is now built into our tutor programme. Within PSHE our students learn about mental health and well being, physical health, how to stay safe, celebrate diversity and understand what it means to be a young person living in Newham today.
