Curriculum Overview

Our curriculum is rich, diverse and personalised to ensure every student achieves his or her true potential. We believe every student should be stretched and challenged through a balanced, rigorous and demanding curriculum.

During Key Stage 3 we place appropriate emphasis on the core subjects – maths, English and science – but we also believe in the importance of the humanities, languages, PE, drama, music, art, design and technology and computing in the development of our students. In Key Stage 4, students will study a core curriculum of English, maths and science and will be able to choose from a range of subjects.

We offer extension and enrichment to challenge our more able learners and provide excellent intervention programmes for students who require extra support.

Homework provides opportunity for research, independent learning and reflection.  Through homework, students are able to consolidate previous learning, gain valuable practice of key skills and concepts, and prepare for future learning.

More Able Learners

More able learners are offered a varied and challenging curriculum that is tailored to suit their needs and to give them the best possible opportunity to gain a place at a leading university at the end of Year 13. The most able learners are provided with the very best opportunities to broaden their knowledge and understanding in all subjects.

As a Harris academy, we are part of Harris Experience, a programme designed for the most able students from Year 9 onwards. It exposes them to a range of cultural experiences that take their learning well beyond the curriculum. Recent examples range from learning the art of auctioneering at Christie’s to attending a day of lectures at the University of Oxford.
