Year 11 Curriculum

Year 11 Study Leave Timetable

Our curriculum is at the heart of our provision to ensure equality of opportunity for all our students. It is our intent that all students will develop the necessary academic habits in order to achieve the highest qualifications and so reach their true potential.  In short our vision is to ensure we reach two main goals, to support our students to get their dream job and to become respectful, model citizens.

What is Curriculum?

Curriculum is the totality of a student’s experiences in school, this incudes form time, PSHE, break and lunch, assembly, clubs, intervention, interactions with teachers but above all it is what is taught in lessons.

Our Curriculum Structure

Key Stage Four – Year 11

Progressing into year 10 represents a different approach to study, students will now have opted into subjects that will allow them to progress into careers/professions that they aim to work in one day.  Students will study core subjects such as English, Maths and Science but must also choose option subjects from the humanities (Spanish, History, Geography) and also from our open bucket (PE, Product Design, Music, Art, Media, Photography).

What are we learning?

Each half term we will provide an overview on what is being taught in each subject area so that you can support your child to keep focussed upon their learning.  Please see below:
