What do we teach?
All of our students undertake a three year Key Stage 3 curriculum which provides the foundations for their Key Stage 4 subjects. During Key Stage 3 all of students study the full Ebacc curriculum complemented by a wide range of foundation subjects.
All students in Year 7, 8 and 9 have five hours of English, four hours of Maths and four hours of Science lessons every week. They supplement this with 2 hours of PE, 2 hours of a language and Geography, History and RE. Students all also study a range of foundation studies including Art, Music, Food, Technology, Drama and Dance.
There is a wide range of extra curricular options also available for students to join at lunch time and after the academy day.
As a commitment to continuing their breadth of studies from Year 9, Key Stage 4 students are entitled to continue studying the full Ebacc curriculum if they wish. All our young people complete GCSEs in English Language and Literature, Maths and at least two Sciences, History and/or Geography and have the option to continue to study a language (French, German or Spanish) until they are 16, alongside a wide range of optional subjects.
Students select their GCSE options at the end of Year 9. Full information can be found in our Guided Choices booklet
