Our Curriculum

Powerful knowledge can ‘enable students to acquire knowledge that takes them beyond their experiences’ (Young et al., 2014)

In order to serve our students with the best that education has to offer, they are taught in four 90 minute blocks of time each day, with three periods taking place on a Friday, over a two-week timetable.  Our Enrichment programme follows the final period of the day, and students also engage with a tutor programme of Personal Development on a Monday afternoon which lasts for 50 minutes.

Our Enrichment programme are planned activities where students are organised by subject areas to participate in activities that will enhance the curriculum; giving the opportunity for a range of different learning experiences, support for the core subjects, intervention, cross curricular projects, coursework.  Focus days or Learning Beyond the Classroom days (LBC) further enhance student opportunities.

Our Curriculum offer is reviewed annually in line with statutory requirements and recommendations from external agencies.  Decisions are made based on the needs of our students in each year group, as we recognise that each separate cohort will have different strengths and weaknesses.

The curriculum for each Key Stage is outlined below.  Details of individual subjects can be viewed on our Subjects page.  Our full curriculum document can be found in our Key Information area.  For further information, please contact Mr Kevin Watson at the Academy.
