Year 7 Curriculum

Our curriculum in Year 7 is designed to set the foundations for learning so that students can make the best, most rapid progression.  Students in year 7 follow a curriculum that develops their knowledge and understanding from primary school and introduces distinct subject areas, delivered by subject specialists.  This allows students to develop a foundation of learning on which they can build throughout years 8 and 9 to prepare them for their GCSE and BTEC courses in years 10 and 11.
