CURRICULUM PATTERN 2011/12
Our timetable consists of 50 one-hour lessons each fortnight. We are committed to offering subjects which challenge students intellectually - we do not follow a curriculum that simply gives points to schools but does not prepare students for the demands of adulthood.
All students follow a balanced curriculum as shown below:
Key State Three (KS3) ~ Years 7, 8 and 9
English, French, History, Geography, Religious Education, Citizenship, Careers and Health Education
|Mathematics, Science and Design & Technology and ICT||

Year 9 students have the opportunity to study German if they have shown an aptitude for studying Modern Foreign Languages in years 7 and 8.
|Key Stage Four (KS4) ~ Years 10 and 11|
Citizenship, Philosophy and Ethics (RE, Careers, Health, Environmental and World Issues)
|Physical Education||4 hrs|
