We aim to ensure every student is challenged to achieve their best at all times by consistently providing engaging lessons which stretch students.
Key Stage 3

- Design and Technology
During year 9 students provision of CIAG will increase and students will be given more focused careers guidance and subject advice in preparation for choosing their options for KS4. From September 2020 students make their decisions in the Summer term of Year 9 and start their GCSE courses at the start of Year 10.
