Key Stage 3
In Year 7 and 8 our curriculum is based on four key factors:
- 1. Following a knowledge-led curriculum
- 2. That all pupils should have access to an academic curriculum.
- 3. That our curriculum is the best route into higher education.
- 4. That our curriculum is subject led.
Key Stage 4
We will study the new GCSEs from Year 9, with our first cohort sitting the exams in 2018. Our education is based on developing subject expertise, not sitting an examination. We will go beyond the GCSE syllabus to ensure we provide the best preparation for A-level studies.
Ethics, Sports and Computer Science are not directed at GCSE qualifications. Instead, we focus on developing expertise and choosing appropriate qualifications where applicable to enhance the pupil’s capacity to pursue the activity outside of school.
