Our Curriculum Model

50-hour two-week cycle because of the flexibility it offers. 

Talents, Abilities and Gifts Time (TAG) will provide curriculum enrichment to all Year groups.

PSHE is taught to all year groups (VESPA time in Year 11)

Drop Down Super Learning Days bolster the curriculum (RE Retreats, STEM and Educational Visits, Careers, PSHE Big Themes via theatre groups)

Reading Interventions and Accelerated Reader are offered during English time at KS3.
