National Curriculum

nationalcurriculumSince the introduction of the National Curriculum secondary pupils are organised into Key Stages 3, 4 & 5. The Academy provides high quality learning across all 3 key stages.

KS3 caters for Years 7-9 for pupils aged 11-14

KS4 caters for Years 10 & 11 for pupils aged 14-16

Key Stage 3

Core Subjects

All pupils will study the 5 core national curriculum subject areas which will enable them to attain the English Baccalaureate in KS4:

  •  English
  • Mathematics
  • Science (Double or Triple)
  • Humanities (Geography or History)
  • Modern Foreign Languages MFL (French or Spanish)

Additional Subjects

Pupils will also study these additional subjects in KS3:

  • Art
  • Citizenship & Health
  • Design & Technology
  • ICT
  • Music
  • Physical Education
  • Religious Studies

Key Stage 4

Pupils continue to follow the National Curriculum but an element of choice is available via the Options at KS4.

This means pupils study for the English Baccalaureate and PE as well as Citizenship, Key Skills and Religious Education. Further choices are available after consultation and advice from the teaching staff, the aim being to provide as broad, balanced and appropriate curriculum as possible for each pupil, leading in most cases to GCSE or the equivalent.
