Super Curriculum

What is the Super Curriculum?

Super curricular activities are those that take you beyond the regular curriculum. They take the subject you study in the classroom beyond that which your teacher has taught you or what you’ve done for homework. The Super Curriculum provides a deeper and richer wealth of material that will allow your mind to fly and develop your understanding on a much bigger scale.  On this webpage, there are a range of activities, suggested by teachers, for you read, listen to, watch and do to stretch yourself and explore your subjects.

To do well at school it is important to have enthusiasm and curiosity for your subject and to develop the capacity for independent study.

By engaging in super curricular activities, you could enhance your grades and open more opportunities for your future simply by broadening your understanding of a particular subject area.
