Central Curriculum

Pupils will study a wide range of subjects in Key Stage 3 (Years 7 and 8). This includes the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science (comprising Physics, Biology and Chemistry) as well as History, Geography, Languages (French and German), PE, Technology (Resistant Materials, Food Technology and Graphics) and the Arts (Art and Design, Drama and Music). Pupils who are not meeting national expectations in English and/or Mathematics at the start of Year 7 may receive additional English and/or Mathematics lessons.

We offer a 3-year Key Stage 4 for all subjects; all pupils will follow a core curriculum of English, Maths, Science, ICT, PSHE, PE and three options.  In some options students may occasionally get the chance to sit their qualifications early and then enhance this with an additional course or qualification.

Option choices include a range of GCSE and BTEC courses (all qualifications we offer are on the DFE approval lists):

  • Art & Design
  • Business Studies
  • Computer Science
  • Drama
  • Food Nutrition
  • French
  • Geography
  • German
  • Graphic Products
  • History
  • Media Studies
  • Music
  • Sports Studies
  • Resistant Materials

Parents and pupils are provided with significant guidance about the option choices that we feel would be most appropriate in terms of their aptitudes and aspirations.

The options booklet for 2018 is being finalised and once it is ready there will be a link here to it.
