Y10 AND Y11 CURRICULUM
In Key Stage 4, our curriculum is built around a core programme of learning with a focus on STEM subjects. Students will build a solid foundation of knowledge and skills leading to GCSE qualifications and, where appropriate, the English Baccalaureate.
The curriculum is designed to ensure that the majority of students take at least 8 qualifications, with exception made for those students for whom a smaller number is more appropriate.
The core education programme will be delivered through themes, linked to the technical specialisms and to employer set challenge projects. ICT will be integrated through all learning within the Academy.
The core curriculum is:-
- GCSE Mathematics
- GCSE English Language
- GCSE English Literature
- GCSE Core and Additional Science (triple GCSE available)
- PE, PSHE and RE are all non-examined
Our specialist engineering qualifications are delivered through employer-led projects to ensure that students experience a real-world challenge, develop their engineering knowledge and practice their employability skills. All students study OCR National in Manufacturing and Engineering Design and/ can choose OCR National in Systems and Control.
In addition, students are able to choose either 2 or 3 choices such as:
- Triple Science (converting Double Science to the 3 separate Sciences)
- Computer Science
- Art and Design
- Business Studies
- Product Design
- OCR National Creative iMedia
- Modern Foreign Languages: French
