London Curriculum

The London Curriculum places the cultural life of London at the heart of Key Stage 2 and 3 learning.

What is the London Curriculum?

The London Curriculum uses the capital as inspiration to bring the national curriculum to life at Key Stages 2 and 3. The programme offers free teaching resources and London Curriculum Lates (evening events for teachers and exciting educational activities for students).

It's Mayor of London's aim to be in every London school supporting teachers to help their students connect with their communities and city.

About the resources

The GLA have worked with a wide range of subject and teaching experts to ensure that the London Curriculum supports education of the highest standard. Each unit has all the resources and lesson plans you need to teach part of the national curriculum. London’s literature, culture, innovations and global heritage are used throughout to illuminate the subject content.

The three stages of the educational model common to all units – Discover, Explore and Connect – create learning experiences that are both exciting and well-structured.

  • Discover: Get your hands on exciting lesson plans and resources inspired by London.

  • Explore: Gives you the chance to extend your learning out of the classroom and into the city.

  • Connect: Sets out a final project so your students can consilidate their learning in a fun and rewarding way.
