The curriculum is designed to be broad and balanced at both Key Stages. Throughout Years 7 to 9, students are taught either in ability sets or as a tutor group dependant on the subject. Students will experience all of the subjects on offer in Key Stage 3 before making option choices in Year 9 that will focus their studies for Key Stage 4. The option subjects include both academic and vocational subjects. Students will receive individual advice and guidance about which subjects are most appropriate to them, based on their ability, aptitude and interests.
