Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Year by Year

This page gives an overview of which subjects are taught in each year. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum throughout the academy, providing students with a wide range of subjects.

Our Key Stage 3 provision is largely covered during years 7 and 8 with many subjects commencing GCSE courses at the beginning of, or during, year 9.


English, Maths and Science curriculum overviews


Subjects covered in years 7 and 8 include:


  • Maths
  • English
  • Science
  • History
  • Geography
  • Religious Studies
  • DT
  • Art
  • Music
  • Drama
  • Sport and Fitness
  • Spanish/Italian
  • Computer Science
  • PHSE (Personal, Health and Social Education) is taught through our coaching time programme in all year groups.

Curriculum choices

We offer our first set of options to students during Year 8 in readiness for them to commence their GCSE studies in Year 9. 

We offer a wide range of options to students and then commit to run the most heavily selected courses, aiming to give as many students as possible their first choices.  Sometimes this leads to double groups in some subjects. 

Most students will take one or two of their GCSEs at the end of Year 10.  We do this because we have found that students manage the pressure of exams more successfully when they can stagger the spread of subjects they are studying at any one time.  A small taste of examination processes in Year 10 also ensures that students fully understand what is needed in order to be successful and helps them to be mentally prepared to approach the coming Year 11 with a measure of understanding brought about by experience.

No student is entered early for an exam if their tracking data suggests that they will not hit their target grade.  This would suggest that they are not ready to achieve maximum success in that subject and needed further time to consolidate and refine their knowledge, skills and understanding.


Core subjects at Key Stage 4

  • Maths
  • English Language
  • English Literature
  • Sciences – including separate Physics, Chemistry and Biology for more able groups
  • History or Geography
  • Spanish/Italian or another modern foreign language
  • Sport and Fitness
  • PHSE (taught through coaching time)
  • Religious Studies (taught through dropdown days)

The vast majority of our students pursue GCSE courses with a very small minority of vocational courses being offered as appropriate.
