We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum to allow every student to experience the widest possible set of subjects in Key Stage 3 before embarking on a personalised and appropriate pathway towards formal qualifications.
Our two-week timetable comprises 50 teaching periods, with literacy programmes, intervention sessions and pastoral activities taking place each afternoon.
Each fortnight students in Years 7 and 8 receive 6 periods of English and Mathematics, 5 periods of Science and Modern Foreign Languages, 4 periods of Religious Education, History, Geography, Physical Education and Design & Technology, with 2 periods assigned to Computing, Music, Art and Drama.
Year 9 allows students to deepen their knowledge in preparation for GCSE studies by focusing on a smaller number of subjects outside of the core of English, Mathematics, Religious Education, Physical Education, Humanities and MFL.
The curriculum in Years 10 and 11 is designed to provide focus and support as students embark on GCSE courses. Students receive 7 periods of English and Mathematics, 9 periods for Double Science or 14 periods for Triple Science, 4 periods for Religious Studies, 2 periods for Physical Education and remaining periods divided between optional GCSE choices.
In the Sixth Form we provide 10 periods per fortnight per A Level subject choice, with additional periods assigned to Religious Education and other academic programmes of study and support.
