  • How, what and why?• The AMYC (Abbeyfield Middle Years Curriculum) is a curriculum that focuses foremost on student learning. It is based on the International Middle Years Curriculum programme and tailored to the specific needs of students at Abbeyfield School, whilst still meeting the requirements of the National Curriculum.• The AMYC will promote independence and interdependence in student learning through discrete subject lessons based around termly themes. This encourages learning that helps students make connections that are relevant to their own lives as well as providing the essential skills to enable our students to reach their full potential at GCSE and beyond.• The AMYC promotes self-reflection and the opportunity for students to make sense of their learning. In addition, it encourages students to use the very latest media platforms to present their learning and express their thinking.
