Curriculum Intent

We have a well-constructed curriculum, tailored to meet the needs of our learners and address social disadvantage on many levels. It is planned and sequenced so that new knowledge and skills build on what has been taught before and remains as broad as possible for as long as possible. 

In Year 7 - 9 all pupils study a strong academic core of subjects including; History, Geography and French and can continue to do so throughout Key Stage 4. The curriculum has been carefully mapped to meet the requirements of the national curriculum. In Year 11 more time has been allocated to the teaching of Maths, English and Science to compensate for learning lost during the pandemic.
