Key Stage 3
In addition to the standard curriculum subjects our students in year 7 have creative curriculum lessons which focus on project-based, active learning which encompasses subjects including Geography, Religious Education and PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education). They are also given opportunities to develop their Personal, Learning and Thinking Skills to develop and broaden their problem solving abilities and their ability to learn independently.
Years 8 & 9
In Year 9 students have the opportunity to choose from French or German. They also choose three areas within the Technology curriculum covering Textiles, Food Technology, Resistant Materials and Electronics to enable them to focus more depth on preparation for GCSE.
