The aims of the academy and the curriculum it provides are truly intertwined; we do not believe in pre-determined curriculum pathways that can limit a student’s choice based on their ability, characteristics or background.
Students in years 7 to 9 study the National Curriculum, which has been interpreted, designed and sequenced by subject experts to prepare students for their next steps. In our most recent Ofsted inspection, June 2022, it was noted that “Subject leaders have ensured that the curriculum is carefully considered and follows a logical sequence. Beyond Year 9, pupils can choose from a wide range of both academic and vocational subjects. This breadth of choice is particularly noticeable in the sixth form, where students can study several different pathways and combinations of qualifications.”
