Curriculum

Curriculum Overview

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.

On the right-hand side of this page you can find the details of the curriculum offer at all years from 7 through to 11.
