We aim to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum that is relevant to our students.

Students follow a common entitlement programme in line with the National Curriculum requirements.

The subjects studied are:

Art, Drama, English, Geography, History, Computing, Citizenship (PSHE), Mathematics, Modern Languages, Music, Physical Education, Religious Education, Science and Technology.

Years 10 and 11 (Key Stage 4)

Students follow a National Curriculum programme, most subjects leading to certification at GCSE. All students follow courses in the following:

English, Citizenship, Mathematics, Physical Education, Religious Education, Science (with the more able students doing three separate Sciences).

Students then select three subjects which can be chosen from the following:

Art, Business Studies, Computing, IT, Drama, Geography, Health and Social Care, History, Modern Languages (currently French, German and Spanish), Music, Physical Education, Textiles, Systems and Control, Food Technology and Resistant Materials.

We encourage most students to study a language to GCSE level. Please note – option subjects are revised annually and subject to change.
