We deliver a wide, varied and traditional curriculum. From the arts to the sciences, we want our students to develop a breadth of knowledge that will stay with them throughout their lives.  Whatever career progression they are working towards, we offer a knowledge rich pathway that will help them to achieve it.

 

Key Stage Three is an exciting phase in the student’s learning journey; laying the foundation for their examination courses, it also offers the chance to move away from primary and go into subjects in greater depth.

 

The journey through Key Stage 4 starts in Year 9, allowing students the time to develop critical thinking and academic rigour. Lessons are purposeful and knowledge driven to secure the key skills that are required to be successful in examinations to secure the next step on their pathway.

 

As we tell students, the grades are part of the journey, not the destination, but with our support, we can ensure that students achieve the grades they require to do whatever they set their sights on.
