Key Stage 3 Curriculum

At Key Stage 3 we have three mixed needs tutor groups (Class 6, 7 and 8), and our KS3 Hub which focuses on communcation development and life skills. 

Pupils are streamed for maths and English lessons and access an enquiry-based ’challenge’ curriculum built around the National Curriculum.

Key Stage 4 Curriculum

At Key Stage 4 we have five mixed needs tutor groups (Class 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13), and our KS4 Hub which focuses on communication development and life skills.

Pupils are streamed for English, maths, D&T, computing, science and PE. Pupils are taught in year groups for PSHE, and Careers/Life Skills sessions are taught within tutor groups. The process of accreditation begins with all pupils having the opportunity to gain qualifications in the following subjects: maths, English, science, D&T, and computing.

Pupils can also select a pathway to study in both Humanities and the Arts, which also lead to a qualification.

Y11 pupils take part in an intensive travel training programme, whilst those who excel at sports join our gifted and talented PE sessions.

Our careers lead is Mrs J Dyson who can be contacted via the school telephone number or the 'Contacts’ page on our website.
