The Curriculum is the set of subject’s students study. As a state funded school our subject content is mainly defined by the National Curriculum although as a converter academy we have some authority over the content taught. The syllabi of the examination courses are set by the relevant exam boards. Subject content can be found by clicking on the appropriate subject to the left.
Our basic Curriculum plan is described in the tables below. This is reviewed annually by senior staff and Governors. It is driven by what is best for the children in our care and by taking into account National initiatives and Government changes.
In the Sixth from there are a wide range of options. Lesson allocation is matched to the student’s choice of subject. Further details can be found in the Sixth from prospectus and the Sixth form Courses area on the site.
In years 7-9 students receive a wide range of subjects with a strong focus on the core of Maths, Science and English, supported by ICT, PE and the Aware Programme.
In Years 10 and 11 all students continue to receive a strong core of Maths, English, Science, PE and can choose at least three rigorous subject areas in addition to the core including: computing, History, Geography and/or a Modern Foreign Language in addition to two free choices which may include 2 vocational subjects.
