Our central purpose is to ensure that all students within Garstang Community Academy achieve the highest standards. These standards apply to all that students do.

We aim to develop a coherent curriculum that builds on young people's experiences and prior learning, which enables of our students to become successful learners and self-assured, responsible citizens.

At GCA, we see the curriculum as the totality of a student’s experience of education with a focus on the quality of teaching and learning, the explicit taught subject knowledge and the development of broader skills and personal qualities. Our ambitious curriculum model is driven by high quality teaching and learning delivered through the “FCAT Way”. We aim to ensure progression by developing deep subject knowledge, subject skills for lifelong learning and enrichment opportunities within and beyond the classroom.

As a consequence of this curriculum model, our expectations for each of our students are for them to grow as a person, be a positive and an active member of the school community, be able to work well independently and interdependently, be employable and want to be the best they can be in whatever they choose to do.
