In the core subjects of Maths and English, there has been an increase in curriculum time to allow for the new depth of the syllabus and to ensure that skills are embedded to enable future progress.
Performing Arts subjects carousel throughout the year so that all students experience Music, Drama, Dance and Art.
Technology subjects incorporate a curriculum designed around developing creativity and honing the skills required in the KS4 technology qualifications. Students complete a course of Food and Nutrition, Textiles and Resistant Materials.
Students will study one language throughout key stage three, all will study either French, German or Spanish.
The Personal, Social, Health and citizenship Education programme is delivered alongside the Religious Education syllabus. The topics are personalised to each year group and the programme of study supports both Social, Moral, Spiritual, Cultural and British Values.
The key stage 4 curriculum incorporates the core subjects of English Language and Literature, Maths, Combined Science, PE and RE.
PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) is delivered through a series of drop down days across the three years.
Students are placed on one of four pathways enabling them to select the most appropriate options subjects and therefore maximise their progress.
