Future Academies is a Multi-Academy Trust built around a family of 10 innovative and ambitious schools across London and Hertfordshire.

As a key part of the Central Team, the Curriculum Centre leads on the development of a common curriculum and its implementation across our academies.
Our approach to curriculum development remains rooted firmly in our belief that all children, irrespective of background, have an entitlement to learn about the best that has been thought and said. As such, our priority is to ensure our academies offer pupils the highest quality of curriculum and teaching. We believe strongly in the efficacy of a subject-specific, knowledge-rich curriculum at key stage 3 that is taught by subject experts through direct instruction.
