There is a common core curriculum, as well as differentiated curriculum routes (known as pathways) to suit the learning needs of individuals, and cross-curricular ICT. All of the pathways develop our students’ critical thinking skills and empower them as emerging citizens, employees and individuals.
The vast majority of students are able to achieve the English Baccalaureate and will follow a pathway that enables them to achieve this, but there will always be flexibility to adapt this for individuals with particular talents, gifts or progression routes.
For the minority of students where an English Baccalaureate or equivalent pathway is an unrealistic aspiration we provide an alternative range of courses and options, enabling every student to gain a sense of self-worth and achievement.
We have broken down our detailed curriculum information into three stages:
- Transition from Primary School
- Key Stage 3 Curriculum (Years 7, 8 and 9) with an example timetable for Year 7
- Key Stage 4 (Years 9, 10 and 11)
