Our Curriculum

The essential purpose of the academy is to enable students to fulfill their potential, not merely as separate personalities but also as contributory members of the community.


Key Stage 4 refers to the last two years of secondary education before post-16 study: Years 10 and 11. As a school, we aim to provide effective courses and learning experiences which provide the maximum number of opportunities for our students to:
• develop their academic, physical and other abilities;
• achieve the best qualifications possible; and,
• progress further in education and employment.

The curriculum is designed to enable all young people to become responsible British and world citizens who:
• are well prepared for life and work;
• are enterprising;
• are able to work with and respect others;
• understand their own cultures and traditions alongside others appreciating the benefits of diversity; and,
• sustain and improve the environment, locally and globally.

The curriculum allows for a degree of choice through the options system; please consult the individual pages below for details of our current Year 10 and Year 11 curricula, and the options available for our current Year 9.
