Learning outcomes

The work that we do in curriculum time and in extra-curricular activities during Year 7 is designed to provide all students with an opportunity to have equal access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum.

The curriculum in Year 8 builds on the content taught in Year 7 in preparation for option pathway choices made at the end of Year 8.

Examination themes continue to be developed across the curriculum.

Year 9

Learning outcomes

Our curriculum in Year 9 gives students the opportunity to study optional examination courses in GCSE or BTEC Sport. All students also continue to participate in core PE lessons where the emphasis is on encouraging students to develop tactics, strategies and a thorough understanding of the rules of team and individual activities. By re-enforcing a sense of fair play, tolerance and good sporting behavior, we encourage the development of a sense of what is right and wrong and what is fair and unfair.
