Curriculum Overview

The Academy offers a wide range of high quality academic and vocational courses. The curriculum for each Key Stage is outlined below while details of the subjects and examination courses currently on offer at the Academy can be viewed on the subject links. Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) is delivered through a combination of discrete lessons, the Tutorial Programme and a range of “Enterprise Days”' that run during the course of each year.

 

Key Stage 3 (Year 7 to Year 9)

The Key Stage 3 curriculum is followed by students in Years 7 and 8. Following their admissions tests for the Academy, Year 7 students are banded into X and Y bands with top sets, middle ability sets and lower ability sets in each band. In this way stretch and challenge as well as additional support can be given to all students allowing teaching to be as closely matched as possible to students’ needs and to ensure all students make the best possible progress. Regular assessments every half term means that progress is reviewed and students are able to move up or down sets within their banding

Key Stage 4 (Year 10 & Year 11)

The Key Stage 4 curriculum is followed by Years 9, 10 and 11. The Academy offers a wide range of academic and vocational courses. All students are given subject options advice, guidance and make their choices during the spring term in Year 8.

Most students will follow an Ebacc Pathway enabling them to study a range of academic core subjects as well as individual choices. The Academy tries as far as possible to cater for all subject choices within the timetable, but if only a small number of students express a preference for a Key Stage 4 course it may not be possible to offer the course. Some subjects may also be oversubscribed, in which case students will be selected according to their aptitude and Attitude to Learning.
