Secondary Curriculum

Secondary pupils build on the learning and strong foundation experienced in Primary School.

Our curriculum places a high trust and value on our middle leaders to construct a curriculum based on research evidence and an agreed set of principles.  They have earned responsibility to design a programme of study which is proactive in building the foundation of knowledge and responds to the emergent needs of the learners.  Each discipline has the flexibility for creative innovation. 

Our pupils have access to a rich range of courses. Pupils choose their option subjects at the end of Year 8 following an extensive programme of Careers guidance and support. 

The following are taught from Year 7

  • English
