Key Stage 3
This is a two year course for most students and provides the foundation for exam success later. In Years 7 and 8, students will concentrate on learning skills and competencies that they will use throughout their careers. Reading, writing and mathematical skills are particularly important and each student will be given tailored support in these areas. The curriculum in Years 7 and 8 is broad and balanced, concentrating on English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities (Geography, History & RE), Modern Foreign Languages, Computer Sciences (ICT), Art, PE, Design Technology, PE and S3 (a programme which develops the skills for lifelong learning throgh PSHCE and Ethical Education).
Key Stage 4
While students will continue with the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and PE, they will be able, with the support and guidance of staff, to make choices in their studies where they can access a wide range of GCSEs and vocational courses, including approved BTEC qualifications.
The Sixth Form offers a breadth of Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications from GCSEs to A-Level courses. There is also an enrichment and enhancement programme within the Sixth Form. Partnerships with Mansfield Learning Partnership enable our students to engage in an extended curriculum which meets the needs of all.
