The traditional curriculum

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 key stage 3 subjects (years 7 to 9) are planned so as to satisfy the following 4 principles;

  • to generate passion for and curiosity about the subject
  • to meet the requirements of the national curriculum
  • to support and be supported by the scholarship curriculum
  • to prepare students for later stages of education including careers

Unlike many other secondary academis or schools, we do not therefore 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.Since we do not yet have any students in years 10 and 11, we have not yet included a break down of topics in each subject for those year groups.

Please note that the content of our subjects and the order in which topics within each subject are taught is currently under review.

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.

In years 7 to 9 our traditional curriculum provides the following
