We believe that the breadth and quality of the curriculum is central to the ongoing achievement, progress and motivation of our students. Our curriculum is innovative, challenging and fulfilling to enable each and every student to achieve their full potential.
We adopt a rigorous programme of literacy intervention to support our academy pledge that every child has a reading age of 10.5 or more by the end of Year 7. This ensures that our students can all access the opportunities that our modern curriculum presents to them.
Our school operates a three-year Key Stage 3 in Years 7, 8 and 9 followed by a two-year Key Stage 4 in Years 10 and 11. Guided option choices are made in Year 9 and students are given every support and encouragement to pursue subjects aligned to their abilities and interests.

Each year we hold a Curriculum Evening for our Year 7 cohort. The evening is designed to inform you about what your child will be studying over the course of the year.
There are presentations from our Directors of Learning of the Ebacc subjects and Pupil Progress Coordinator of that Year Group. The evening is an important event as it allows you to learn how you can ensure that your child makes the best possible progress they can.
Our Year 7 Curriculum Evening for 2019/20 is on Thursday 12 September 2019 from 5-6pm
