The National Curriculum core and other foundation subjects and religious education are studied by all students at Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9). In addition, these students take drama and PSCHE (Personal, Social, Citizenship and Health Education).
At Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11), the curriculum includes a ‘core’ and a system of constrained options. The core subjects are: English (language and literature); mathematics; science (double certificate or three separate sciences); physical education; health, wellbeing and citizenship.
In the Sixth Form (Years 12 and 13), a wide range of courses is offered to prepare students for higher and further education, training and employment. Most students will take four subjects in Year 12 and continue with at least three of these subjects in Year 13.
- The sixth form curriculum is summarised in the sixth form prospectus
Throughout the curriculum, we aim to prepare our students for life in modern Britain.
