Years 7 & 8

Pupils in Years 7 & 8 (Key Stage 3) are taught the core subjects of English, Maths, Science, RE and Languages. Additionally, they receive lessons in Art, Drama, Geography, History, Design Technology, and Physical Education. Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development is embedded across the curriculum.

We provide a broad, balanced and diverse curriculum within the framework of the National Curriculum. There is a strong focus on developing literacy and numeracy skills and extra time and resouces are devoted to these throughout the curriculum.

The formal curriculum consists of twenty-five one hour periods. Four lessons take place in the morning and there is one lesson in the afternoon. Our after-school extended learning programme consists of revision lessons for those taking public examinations and a variety of clubs and after-school activities.

We offer a broad range of GCSE and vocational courses to suit the creative, sporting, practical and academic learner including Art, Business Studies, Design and Technology, Drama, Geography, History, Modern Foreign Languages, Sociology, Psychology and Sport.
