Our Flagship Curriculum

Our flagship curriculum, the Learning Challenge Curriculum, has been designed to help you create your own bespoke curriculum that is ambitious and knowledge-rich, creating curious and motivated learners. We’ve focused on History, Geography and Science as our main drivers, and we’ve produced Art & Design and Design & Technology units to complement them, enabling your pupils to do more, know more, and remember more.

Enquiry Based-Learning

Developed with enquiry-based learning at its heart, we have ensured that each unit of learning is led by an overarching enquiry question linking to the composites set out in the National Curriculum. Within each unit, four or five components have been developed based around sub-enquiry questions to support your children to thrive when immersed in the learning process.

Substantive and Disciplinary Knowledge

Our Learning Challenge Curriculum is built on sequencing knowledge and skills progressively. Long-term overviews make both the substantive and disciplinary knowledge children need to know explicit for your teachers, and progression within each unit is clear, too.


When implementing the Learning Challenge Curriculum, all of our units ensure that time is spent igniting children’s prior knowledge (link it), a focus on new learning (learn it), regular checkpoints to ensure your children are keeping up (check it), an opportunity for them to also reflect on their learning (show it), and retrieval activities that will happen after their learning has been completed (know it).

Progression within the unit of learning

We have designed the LCC to support teachers and leaders nationwide in developing their own narratives through their schools, ensuring knowledge is sequenced effectively, building on prior learning and highlighting the ‘golden threads’ that run through.

Resources to support staff

Each school needs to be clear about what they want their pupils to be able to do, know and remember by the time they leave, and our Learning Challenge Curriculum enables you to do this by including numerous resources that we have produced to support and inspire both your staff and your children. These include (but the list is not exhaustive):

  • progression maps
  • long term plans
  • schemes of work
  • knowledge organisers
  • retrieval activities
  • low stake quizzes

Constantly Evolving

It’s a curriculum that doesn’t stand still. We regularly review our content and ensure that our consultants develop new resources to broaden the level of support that we can provide for your school.
