Curriculum Overview

THE CORE CURRICULUM:

For the first three years, students follow a broad and challenging academic programme. We offer an increased timetable for English, Mathematics and Science that ensures students are able to achieve a wider breadth of success at Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11). As students move into Key Stage 4, they are given the opportunity to choose thier own individualised pathways that typically lead to between 8 and 10 GCSEs.  It is essential that all children leave school with a mastery of English and Mathematics

Our Sixth Form curriculum focuses primarily on the most academic A Levels that allow students to gain places at the best universities, however we do also offer vocational pathways in IT!

Our first priority is that we build a foundation in literacy and numeracy as this provides a gateway to all other learning. Students should be able to read, write and work with numbers fluently and confidently. Our curriculum focuses heavily on building these foundations.

Assessment

We assess students’ academic progress regularly. Accurate and thorough assessment is essential to ensure that students are placed in the most suitable groups with appropriate challenge and support.

Formal assessments take place each half term and parents are informed of their child’s progress. Students, teachers and parents all know exactly what steps are needed to move each child to the next level of success. Parents/carers are invited to attend our parents evenings, where parents are informed about their child’s academic progress and where we agree targets for future learning.

 

Any concerns regarding student progress or learning in the first instance should be raised with the appropriate Director of Learning. Parents can contact the academy on 0207 737 9520 or via email requesting a call back from a Director of Learning.
