We constantly seek new and engaging innovations for our curriculum, the curriculum includes our high impact Resilience Curriculum, where we challenge our Year 7 to be the most resilient learners they can be.


In Year 8, our Enrichment Curriculum offer includes cooking, sports leadership and team building activities amongst others; all subjects delivered in school time and offered by our dedicated teaching staff, who have a passion for something beyond the normal curriculum.


Year 9 students have the opportunity to study pre-options with the aim of engaging, inspiring and up-skilling students so that they are enthusiastic about their option choices and prepared for success.


In Year 10 and 11, students focus on the core, but choose from the widest range of options subjects that we can give them, thus giving them a broad base of experiences on which to make informed choices for post 16.
