Curriculum

The key focus of our curriculum provision is to enhance essential academic skills, whilst also providing
students with a range of opportunities and experiences focused on personal development and wellbeing.

Our curriculum provides all students with the opportunity to achieve qualifications in:

• GCSE English Language
• GCSE English Literature
• GCSE Mathematics
• BTEC Science
• BTEC Level 2 Sport and Coaching

These are all recognised Progress 8 qualifications:

All students will also be entered for Functional Skills qualifications in English and Maths at the appropriate
level, from Entry to Level 2. Early entry for these exams has a positive impact on self-esteem and builds
confidence which extends to GCSEs.

Additional non-Progress 8 qualifications focus on student personal development in the form of Duke of
Edinburgh Bronze and Silver qualifications, NCFE in Digital Skills and ASDAN Certificate of Personal
Effectiveness.

Students will also study:

• Geography/ History/ Art & ICT through project-based learning
• PSHE
• Sport
• Life Skills
• Enrichment
• Employability

Students in KS4 also have the option to undertake weekly, full or
half-day work placements with local employers where
appropriate.

Opportunities are built across the curriculum to support student
literacy and numeracy, underpinned by SMSC, British Values, PSHE
and CEIAG.
