Our KS3 Curriculum
We offer a broad and balanced curriculum which ensures every student experiences a breadth of knowledge and deeper learning of context and foundational skills before embarking on their examined programme of studies.
Reading and writing are at the heart of our curriculum and key skills in literacy, numeracy and ICT are the responsibility of all staff across our academy. Students are placed in mixed ability mentor groups and are sometimes set for subjects. Students can move up or down in sets as determined by their regular assessments and therefore aptitude for the rigour and challenge of each class.
Option Choices include the following:
Triple Science: Physics, Chemistry and Biology or Combined Science.
Humanities: either History or Geography and modern foreign languages, currently French.
Other choices which include a range of technology, arts and vocational subjects, including: Child Care, Art, Hospitality & Catering, Engineering, Events Operations, Performing Arts, Music Performance and Music Technology, Media Studies, ICT, Health & Social Care, Health & Fitness.
We will upload the Options Pathways booklet when the next process is launched.
