    Curriculum Policy 

    At Lilian Baylis Technology School we constantly review the curriculum in order to ensure that our students have access to the most relevant courses available. We have recently introduced Y7 and Y8 numeracy catch up, Construction and Computer Science.

    At the start of each academic year every parent is issued with a curriculum plan booklet outlining the curriculum their child will be following. This is supplemented with a half termly booklet that details home learning and any exams.
