Key Stages 3 & 4

Our curriculum is designed to provide a rich, diverse and exciting experience. Subjects are grouped into four learning teams:
  • Communications
  • Mathematics & Enterprise
  • Science & Technology
  • Sport & Creativity
This places equal value on all subjects, understanding that they each offer something for our students. It also allows us to recognise and develop individual interests, skills and talents.  Each team is led by a director of learning, responsible for ensuring the quality of teaching and learning and that all students make progress. Intervention tutors, attached to each learning team, work with students individually and in small groups to support and challenge them to improve.

At Key Stage 3, students study the full range of National Curriculum subjects. Most classes are grouped or ”setted” by ability. At Key Stage 4, students complement the core of English, Mathematics and Science with a number of option subjects chosen from a wide range of academic and vocational subjects. Our innovative curriculum structure is specifically designed to maximise student choice, whilst ensuring that the Academy can meet the demands of the Government’s new “Progress 8” performance measure.
