Our curriculum in Years 7-11
Our curriculum at both Key Stage 3 and 4 gives all of our students the opportunity to experience a wide range of exciting and challenging subjects that are designed to challenge our students and give them a thirst for learning.
Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9)
In Year 7 English, Mathematics and Science ‘set’ our students according to their particular ability. For all of the subjects listed in the table students are taught in mixed ability groups.
At Key Stage 3 students follow a broad and balanced curriculum which is aspirational and challenging for all. We have high expectations for every student in our academy and we focus on the principle of opening minds and opening doors through a world class education.
Year 9 Pathways
During Year 9, students will make their option choices in. preparation for KS4.
We offer three different pathways which allows 92% of our students access the Ebacc provision should they opt to do so. All pathways are designed to offer a wide range of subjects to everyone and ensure students have the opportunity to access abroad and balanced curriculum.
Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11)
The curriculum pattern provided for Year 10 and 11 students also closely follows the National Curriculum requirements for Key Stage 4 (14-16) with all students studying for qualifications in the core subjects of English, mathematics and science. Our curriculum at KS4 is reviewed annually in order to best meet the needs of our students.
Throughout our curriculum design we interleave SMSC and fundamental British values in order to prepare our students to be valued citizens of our local, national and international communities.
