Curriculum Overview

Curriculum offer

At the Sir Robert Woodard Academy we understand Curriculum as what the students experience every day in our Academy. We know that all of our students are inherently talented and that is why we offer a wide range of subjects to ensure that every child has the chance to shine. We pay particular attention to the Core skills of Mathematics, we are also very proud of our reputation for delivered excellence in the area of performing Arts and we value the natural creativity that all children possess. The curriculum is regularly revisited to ensure it is balanced, rigorous, appropriate and relevant.

Our curriculum is wide-ranging and provides opportunities for academic success, as well as personal growth; challenging, motivating and engaging our students, ensuring opportunities for success in securing a wide range of qualifications throughout their time in the Academy.  Students follow accredited academic or vocational qualifications, with progression routes either directly into work or to university, as appropriate. 

We know that the most successful students are those who are engaged and inspired by what they learn.  Our staff are committed to high quality teaching that engages and motivates students of all ages and abilities and provides them with the skills and confidence to tackle the rapidly changing world.

We offer a three year KS4 GCSE provision as we feel this gives students additional time to develop the skills needed for the demands of these courses. Students in year 8 will choose their options from a broad range of subjects. Our options are structured so that most of our students will be entered for the English Baccalaureate.
