The traditional curriculum
We want our key stage 3 curriculum to provide the knowledge and understanding of a broad range of subjects both academic and technical or vocational which best prepare students for success in their later academic or training careers.
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 curriculum time for education about religion, ethical and philosophical issues and personal, social, health and economic issues.
Our traditional curriculum is substantially supported, especially in English, Maths, History, Science, Geography, Religious education and personal, social, health and economic learning by our scholarship curriculum.
