Curriculum Overview - Phase 2

Students have a 25 hour week and study a mixture of maths, English, science, MFL (Spanish or French), geography, history, RS, art, performing arts, music, technology, computing and PE.

In Year 9, students are able to personalise elements of their curriculum:

  • Humanities – students opt to have 2 lessons per week of either history or geography. They have 1 hour per week of the other subject.
  • Option – students are able to choose from a range of creative qualifications which they will complete in years 9 and 10. Further information on the qualifications can be found on the ‘Curriculum subjects’ pages.
  • Creative carousel – to complement their creative qualification, students will choose three additional creative subjects to study on a rotation. These are:
    • Art
    • Music
    • Performing Arts
    • Product Design
    • Food
    • Conversational French/Spanish

Students who have difficulty in accessing the English and maths curriculum attend English support classes in place of MFL and additional history/geography lessons. For more information on this provision please see the separate ‘Student support’ tab.
