Curriculum overview


Letter about changes to the curriculum

Our academy offers a traditional academic curriculum built around the core disciplines of English, Maths, Science, Humanities and Languages (also known as the English Baccalaureate subjects). We offer the arts and have a number of subjects for students to develop their talents such as Computing, Catering, Business and Enterprise and Media Studies.

In order to allow our students time to study their KS4 pathway in greater depth we have a 3 year KS4 for all subjects except English, Maths and Spanish.

Owing to our belief that students work best in groups of similar ability, classes are streamed in most subjects. However, movement between classes is fluid so students can change up or down according to the progress they are making.  In KS3 students are taught in mixed ability groups for Art, computing, Drama, Food Technology, Music and Physical Education.

We inform parents in advance which topics will be covered in the each term. The documents are available below:
