Curriculum

We have a diverse curriculum which aspires to respond to the local and national agenda both intelligently and creatively in order to ensure all our students receive a high quality learning experience at all times.

Key Stage 3 (KS3)

In Years 7 and 8, all students study National Curriculum subjects, complemented by a technology and creative arts carousel, delivered in specialised classrooms with dedicated resources and equipment.

In order to effectively meet the needs of every student’s a combination of setting and mixed ability, lessons are taught within the KS3 curriculum, with a strong emphasis on differentiated teaching and resources to ensure that each student is challenged and extended. Regular and consistent assessment in tracking student progress across the curriculum means regular student movement between sets.

Key Stage 4 (KS4)

In Years 9, 10 and 11 students continue following the National Curriculum Subjects in English; Maths; Science; Physical Education; Religious Education and Personal,  Social and Health Education (PCSHE). We begin our options process in the Spring Term where students of Year 8 are guided carefully onto a range of courses in which they show both interest and aptitude.

Students are offered a choice of extra subjects at KS4 that will form their individual GCSE curriculum.

We are excited to be currently redeveloping and reviving our  Key stage 3 curriculum offer, the plans for Curriculum 2020 are well underway. in the meantime please find below our current curriculum theme and key skills at both KS3 & KS4 and our newly developed curriculum 2020 vision.
