Year 9 Curriculum Personalisation
In Year 8, students have the opportunity to tailor their curriculum of subjects through curriculum personalisation.
The principles of this process are as follows:
- To ensure our curriculum is tailored and personalised to our students.
- To ensure our students have full exposure to a curriculum based around the KS3 National Curriculum. This is broad and ambitious, giving coverage and depth of as many subjects as possible.
- To ensure our students have the opportunity to personalise their curriculum and gain exposure to possible GCSE option subjects in Year 9.
- Final choices of subjects to study in Years 10 and 11 will take place later in Year 9.
In Year 9, all students will study the Core Curriculum:
English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, Spanish, Religious Studies, PE (non-examined) and Personal Development (non-examined).
In addition to this, students will choose three subjects (in preference order) from the following:
Art, Craft & Design, Business, Drama, Food Preparation and Nutrition, Health & Social Care, Design Technology, Creative iMedia (IT course), Computer Science, Media, Citizenship, Music, Sports Studies.
Finally, students will choose a ‘reserve’ subject to study should it not be possible for them to study one of their original choices.
