What is the London Curriculum?

The London Curriculum brings the new national curriculum to life. It’s inspired by London’s people, places and heritage.

Make London your classroom!

If you’re looking for fresh ways to inspire your students, the London Curriculum can help.  It’s available for free and puts London at the heart of teaching the new national curriculum. It helps students engage with their school subjects and their heritage as young Londoners. 

It’s been almost two years since we launched London Curriculum resources for key stage 3 in July 2014. Since then, over 300 secondary schools have joined up. We now welcome hundreds of primary schools with our new key stage 2 resources which are now available.
