In KS3 pupils access the full National curriculum offer but it is taught within the MYP framework. The subjects fit into one of the following 8 MYP subject groups:

  • Language and Literature – English 
  • Mathematics – Maths
  • Sciences – Science
  • Individuals and Societies – History, Geography and PSHRE
  • Language Acquisition – Languages
  • Arts – Art, Drama, Music
  • Design – IT, Food, Textiles, Hard Technology
  • Physical and Health Education – PE

The Secondary – Two-weekly Cycle

The Academy day is divided into 5, one hour teaching periods over a two week cycle, giving 48 periods per fortnight.  In addition to this we have an extra period at the end of the day for pupils to attend intervention/enrichment sessions and after Academy day clubs.

You can see from the diagram linked below how the KS3 subjects are part of the 5 year journey that our pupils embark on. In each subject area pupils build the knowledge and skills required to become masters in each area and therefore progress onto the next stages of education.
