From September 2021, our students will follow a three-year Key Stage 3 curriculum and will commence exam courses in Year 10.
Students are taught in mixed ability groups in all subjects except Maths and English, where they are streamed based on their prior attainment and in-house assessment.
A small number of students in Years 7 and 8 benefit from being part of a nurture group which is taught English, Maths and Science within the same class and classroom.
