KS3 Curriculum – exciting new learning pathways
In Years 7 and 8, the majority of students follow a broad and balanced curriculum comprising the following subjects:
- Food Technology
- Modern Foreign Languages – Spanish or French
- Physical Education
This learning pathway is a specialised pathway to support those students who are not yet ready to cope with the demands and rigour of a secondary school curriculum. The programme is primary based with extra lessons in English/Literacy and Mathematics/Numeracy. Subjects such as the Humanities and Arts are taught as cross curricular themes and is base around project based learning. When ready students “graduate” from this pathway onto the “Main Pathway”
In addition to these subjects, students also receive a programme of personal, social, health and economics education (PSHEE) along with careers education which is delivered during RE lessons, tutor time and enrichment periods. Students in Year 7 will follow themes on personal safety, drugs and alcohol and sex education. The majority of sessions are delivered by external professionals and experts within the School. Parents are advised before students attend sex education lessons.
