The traditional curriculum
Unlike many other secondary academies or schools, we do not shorten or narrow key stage 3 in order to start GCSE early.
To find out more about what is included in each subject please click on the relevant subject tab on the left.
Our curriculum time is planned to best provide depth and breadth in academic subjects like English, Maths, History and Geography, Science and Languages while at the same time providing meaningful opportunities for learning in arts, sports and technical subjects like Art, Drama, Dance and PE.
We also provide adequate curriculum time for education about religion, ethical and philosophical issues, personal, social, health and economic issues, relationships and sex education, public speaking and healthy lifestyles.
Students in key stage 3 also dedicate time to developing their own independent learning skills through 'prep.'
Our traditional curriculum is substantially supported, especially in English, Maths, History, Science, Geography, Religious education, Modern Foreign Languages and personal, social, health and economic learning by our scholarship curriculum.
