W E L C O M E T O O P E N I N G M I N D S !
The Opening Minds department is now entering its third year of providing our year seven
students with an exciting, challenging and enriching transition curriculum. We have continued
to grow as a department and are incredibly proud of all our success; including achieving
Opening Minds accreditation with the RSA in July and being singled out by the Local Authority
and Ofsted as an outstanding department. In addition we are now running an Opening Minds
Year 8 program where students will work toward the RSA Opening Minds Award.
W H A T I S O P E N I N G M I N D S ?
In Year 7 students are not only taught subject knowledge and content but also
taught important skills that will enable them to become successful independent
learners for life. This skill-based approach is known as Opening Minds. There are
different personal, learning and thinking skills (known as PLTS) that are at the heart
of this approach and at QK we have chosen to teach these skills particularly through
Maths, Science, Literacy, ICT, History, Geography, and R.E. These subjects have
been chosen as there are lots of cross curricular links between them already at QK
and the staff teaching them will plan lessons and trips together.

Opening Minds divides the year into three Learning Journeys; QK, UK, The
World; The Time Machine; 'Just is' isnt Justice.
