Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Year 10

The Academy adopts a three year Key Stage 4 model. All students make some initial option choices at the end of Year 8, with further choices in Year 9. The core subjects of Maths, English and Science involve four hours of contact time every week. In addition to their option choices, students also follow courses in PE and RE.

We offer a wide range of GCSE options and Applied Provision. Whether students’ interests lie in the separate Sciences or Construction, we have a broad curriculum which will meet their needs.
