KS3 AND KS4 CURRICULUM

**We are currently updating this section of our website to share with you are exciting new curriculum.

We have dedicated a lot of time to ensuring that our Academy curriculum is well suited to meeting the needs of all of our learners and that they have access to quality resources available allowing them to take ownership of their own learning.


Learning Handbooks

Our new Learning Handbooks have been designed to give our community a clear understanding of how our curriculum is constructed and to contain a comprehensive breakdown of exactly what our students are learning.

For your convenience, we have separated our KS3 curriculum into individual year group (years 7, 8 and 9) booklets and have our full KS4 curriculum within one booklet, but separated into year group sections. We have also separated the curriculum into termly content; i.e. each year group will have an Autumn, Spring and Summer booklet. Our Autumn booklets are available below.

Within each subject there are direct links to any relevant Knowledge Organisers (see below).



Curriculum by Faculty

Within this section you will find our:


► Faculty Handbooks

Our Faculty Handbooks provide more information about each specific faculty within the Academy.


► Knowledge Organisers

Our Knowledge Organisers are 'learning mats' that have been designed to contain all of the key learning for that subject's topic. Our students will use these within their lessons but are also encouraged to use them to support their own learning, homework and for revision.


We have linked any relevant KOs within the appropriate section of our Learning Handbooks but have also made them available below for extra convenience.
