Our Curriculum at Key Stage Three

We operate an all-through curriculum, meaning that throughout their time with us, students will build on their skills in different subjects. Our curriculum is both broad and balanced and follows the National Curriculum for Maintained Schools.

Students make their choices about which subjects they wish to carry through to GCSE study in Year 9 so we feel it is important that they get a wide-ranging experience of all the subjects we offer during their first three years with us. This allows them to make informed decisions about their future options.

We also offer a varied PSHE curriculum, alongside the academic studies. We cover a range of topics to support our students in making important choices in their lives and about their futures

Students are taught in banded teaching groups: B, O, U, R, N and E. In some subjects, for example, English, Maths and Science, they are taught in sets to ensure the correct levels of challenge for all.

Each subject has a carefully designed curriculum which has a clear and defined intent behind it. Please take a look at the individual subject pages for information about teaching and learning in each of the specialist areas.

Students are also allocated a tutor group with a dedicated form tutor who they will see every morning. We have a tutor time activities programme, which includes academic progress checks, current affairs sessions and our Rights Respecting topics. The form tutor is the first point of contact for parents to get in touch with the school.

Friday 15th July, Year 10 presented their speeches for their English Language GCSE. The day went smoothly with presentations ranging from Climate Change and Health, to Gun Crime and Gaming. It was really lovely to hear about things that interest our students.
Well done Year 10! https://t.co/s6u4DngVT7
