Our curriculum provides a rich, broad and balanced learning experience for all students across all years.
We see our curriculum as being holistic, with our resources carefully planned to flow seamlessly from the moment students join us in Year 7 until the point they leave us at the end of Year 11 or 13.
Our intention is to fulfil all the requirements of the National Curriculum and beyond, and to cater for the needs of students of all abilities. All students in years 7 – 13 study Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) to enable our students to grow up healthy, happy, safe, and able to manage the challenges and opportunities of modern Britain.
In Years 7 to 9 students follow a broad, common curriculum. Students are taught the separate subjects of mathematics, English, science, ethics & philosophy, physical education, history, geography, modern language, food technology, ICT/Computing, art & design technology, drama, music and dance. These classes are taught by subject specialists to ensure a successful learning experience.
In Year 9 students begin the GCSE curriculum in Mathematics, English and Science. In March, students choose their GCSE option subjects, which they continue until the end of Year 11. These GCSE subject choices mark the transition towards the all-important final assessments in Year 11.
We offer a broad curriculum opportunity in our Sixth Form, including both vocational and A level courses. A curriculum enrichment programme, including P.E. and RSHE, is followed, standards are high and students are expected to be committed to their studies.
