Curriculum structure the curriculum is delivered through a 25 lesson a week timetable, each lesson lasting for 55 minutes. In addition there are 2 sessions a week with a tutor through which Personal Health and Social Education is delivered. The balance of time is as follows:
|SUBJECT||Number of Weekly lessons in Year 7/8|
|Art Design and Technology (ADT) (includes Computing, Food Technology, Product Design and Art)||3|
|Humanities (includes History, Geography and RE).||3|
|Business enterprise /Nigerian studies||1|
|Modern Languages (French and Spanish 2)||2|
|Performing Arts (includes Drama, Music, Media and Dance)||2|
In all subjects we aim to build on the learning that has taken place in the Primary School at Key Stage 2. Broadly we follow the national curriculum at Key Stage 3, although we also aim to prepare our students for IGCSE at the end of Year 11, and have planned curriculum and assessment milestones in all subjects . Assessment is continuous through formative tasks and through end of course summative assessments.
