London Curriculum

The London Curriculum places the cultural life of London at the heart of key stage 3 learning.

What is the London Curriculum?

The Mayor’s London Curriculum is an exciting programme that brings the new national curriculum to life, inspired by London’s people, places and heritage.

We’ve developed 15 free teaching resources schools can use. These support key stage 3 in English, Music, Art and Design, Geography and History. Register today and you’ll get instant access to the full suite of resources.

Join over 160 schools that now get FREE:

  • teaching resources to help learning in and outside school - developed by the Royal Geographical Society, Museum of London, Institute of Education and other experts
  • exclusive evening sessions for teachers at leading London venues including the National Portrait Gallery, British Library, British Museum and Shakespeare’s Globe
  • competitions, events and other opportunities for students to showcase their learning

We’ll have new London Curriculum resources in STEM subjects from this July. Languages, Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE), citizenship and RE will follow in 2016.

London cultural and heritage organisations

The London Curriculum offers a great way for cultural organisations to build new relationships with schools in London. The programme was designed specifically to showcase the fantastic learning opportunities within the city and we want to ensure it celebrates as many offers to schools as possible. There are many ways to get involved, so get in touch for some ideas on how you can help support the programme.
