Curriculum aims

Curriculum Information

All young people need an excellent command of English and Mathematics to ensure their success in all areas of the curriculum. To support this we dedicate extra time to these two areas: giving students additional support for literacy and numeracy where required.

In Key Stage 3 students will study core subjects in depth to allow students to secure firm foundations in English and Mathematics, so that they find the rest of the curriculum far easier to access.

To fully support our students’ achievement in Mathematics, we follow the English and Mathematics Mastery Curriculum, a highly-effective curriculum and teaching approach inspired by pupil success in Singapore and endorsed by OFSTED.

At Key Stage 4 all students study the core subjects and select a varying number of options depending on their pathway.
