Private sector still offers breadth
Many will see this as an unnecessarily rigid means of improving standards.
I believe that independent schools will still want to provide a broad range of well-resourced subjects, including history, geography, art, music, design technology and physical education, while continuing to seek excellence in the basic subjects of English, maths, science and information technology. I am confident that prep schools will still be able to offer a broad and balanced curriculum without sacrificing their traditional strengths in basic literacy and numeracy.
