The foundations of a broad, balanced curriculum are laid in Years 7, 8 and 9. This is continued in Years 10 and 11 where the curriculum is based on a core of subjects, which all students must follow, complemented by a small amount of choice.
As an 11-19 school our courses are designed wherever possible to complement those offered in our Sixth Form.
The compulsory core curriculum subjects are:
Careers and Personal Social Health and Citizenship Education
PE (no examination)
Religious Education (no examination)
In order to offer our students a more bespoke offer, we have divided the curriculum into two 'learning pathways' within which all students are able to access a range of suitable subject choices and achieve their potential at GCSE or equivalent.
To ensure that both parents and students are fully informed, information will be provided at a number of key points:
Tuesday 26th February - Learning Pathways booklets issued to Year 9 students in assembly
Tuesday 5th March - Year 9 Interim report and Learning Pathways form issued
Tuesday 12th March - Year 9 Progress Evening
Friday 15th March - Learning Pathways form completed and handed in to form tutor.
