At Bathgate Academy we aim to ensure all our learners are entitled to and experience a curriculum that includes a range of features at the different stages of learning. These entitlements ensure our young people are provided with continuous opportunities to develop skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work.

'Our Curriculum' document can be downloaded from the links section on this page.

By reflecting on the features and contexts of learning we have designed our curriculum based on the following principles:

  • Challenge and Enjoyment
  • Breadth
  • Progression
  • Depth
  • Personalisation and Choice
  • Coherence
  • Relevance


We believe Bathgate Academy provides a curriculum that meets all of the requirements and principles described above. This ensures our learners experience a blend of curricular and personal achievement opportunities which will enable them to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they will need to flourish in life, learning and work, now and in the future.
