Key Stage 3   

The curriculum offered for Years 7 - 9 is designed to build upon the curriculum provided in the primary schools and to act as a foundation for future examination courses and careers.  All students in the first three years follow a broad and balanced curriculum which includes Religious Studies, Mathematics, English, Science, History, Geography, Art, Music, Drama, Physical Education, Design Technology and Information Technology.

In order to increase the levels of literacy and numeracy a select group of students follow a dedicated  course while the remainder of the year group is studying Spanish.

During March, students in Year 9 make their Pathway choices for the Key Stage 4 part of their education.



Key Stage 4

The Key Stage 4 curriculum is made up of two components, ‘Core’ and ‘Choices’. The core is what all students have to study. ‘Choices’ is where students have a choice of what they study. 

The core consists of English, Maths, Double Science and PSHE.  

English - students will undertake both GCSE Language and Literature exams. 

Maths - all students will undertake GCSE Maths and some may have the opportunity to study Statistics

Science - students will study double or triple Science throughout Key Stage 4.

The ‘Choices’ component consists of up to four subjects of a students choice. All of the subjects and their descriptions are listed in the Pathway Guide which is issued in March. You can view the individual information sheets issued in March 2018 by clicking on the subject names below:
