Curriculum

Resilience, honesty, ambition, respect and equality are the values that underpin our curriculum and all aspects of School life. These core values ensure that every young person has a firm foundation for the next stage of their academic career and develops the life skills to respond to the challenges of an increasingly complex world.

A commitment to an ‘Arts for All’ curriculum ensures that our young people have the opportunity to explore their creativity. Through discussion, analysis and developing vocabulary, students are empowered to express, with confidence, their innermost emotions and thoughts. Our specialist Art facilities provide students with exceptional opportunities to discover and develop their artistic talents.

Our social, moral, spiritual and cultural syllabus celebrates diversity and promotes British Values.

 Key Stage 3

Our aim is to inspire a passion for learning.

Students are provided with the opportunity to explore a wide range of subjects, from Design and Technology to Computer Science. This broad, balanced curriculum ensures students make informed choices about their GCSE programmes of study.

For the majority of lessons, students are taught in their tutor groups. Mathematics and English are set by ability from Year 7 onwards and Science classes are set by ability from Year 9.

 Key Stage 4

The School supports every student to construct an individualised programme of study, ensuring breadth, challenge and a clear route of progression, best suited to their interests and career goals.

Our students are set by ability in Mathematics, English and Science. Targeted students are further supported by additional Numeracy and Literacy lessons and, when appropriate, a range of alternative qualifications to complement their GCSE programmes of study.
