Curriculum

In Years 7 & 8 students follow a curriculum based on their KS2 assessments and our own baseline assessments.
Students are placed into one of the following groups Accelerated, Focus+, Focus or Enhanced.
Accelerated – Students that have achieved above national expectations at KS2
Focus + - Students that have achieved well in Mathematics but many need additional literacy support
Focus – Students that have just achieved national expectations or just below national expectations at KS2
Enhanced – Students that have achieved below national expectations at KS2. These students will receive extra Literacy and Numeracy support.

In Year 9 students begin to make choices about the subjects they will study at GCSE level, taking core subjects and a choice of Ebacc and arts/technology options.

In Years 10 and 11 students study a core curriculum and up to 3 options. All students have an interview with a senior member of staff to make their option choices. This helps to get the right course for the each student. It is also possible to take course with other local providers eg Exeter College.

There is also the opportunity for some students to follow a personalised skills-based programme which could lead into further studies or employment with training.

If you would like to discuss your options with a member of staff please speak to your tutor in the first instance.
