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.

For 2019-20 only, our Key Stage 3 provision is largely covered during years 7 and 8 with some subjects commencing the transition to GCSE content during Year 9. Other than RE and non-Science component of Sex Education, all National Curriculum subjects are statutory and we cannot allow withdrawal based on religious grounds from any of these subjects (e.g. PE, Music and Drama). From 2020-21, all National Curriculum subjects will be delivered until the end of Year 9. Option choices for Year 10 and Year 11 will be made in the Spring term of Year 9.


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

From 2020, we will offer our first set of options to students during Year 9, in readiness for them to commence their GCSE studies in Year 10.

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. 


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.
