Curriculum

Our curriculum is organised as a two week timetable of 50 one hour lessons.

Year 10 and 11

Students are taught in ability sets for Mathematics, English and Science on a half year group basis. Whilst option subjects are in principle of mixed ability, there are strict guidelines in operation to ensure appropriate option choices.

Each student must continue with the compulsory core curriculum:

  • Mathematics
  • English
  • Science
  • Physical Education
  • Beliefs and Values

Students complete their curriculum at KS4 with three further Option subjects. Their choices will reflect their preferred learning styles as well as academic or skills based ability. We offer a range of qualifications to suit a variety of learning needs.

For further information on all subjects taught during year 10 and 11 please see the information booklets on the right hand side menu. Detailed information on the content of each course can be found on the relevant awarding bodies website.

The English Baccalaureate

Students have the opportunity to study the subjects at KS4 which will allow them to achieve the English Baccalaureate: A GCSE in a Modern Foreign Language (which they may already have achieved in Year 9), Computing, History or Geography and, of course, the core subjects of Mathematics, English and Science.
