Year 9 Curriculum

Our curriculum in Year 9 is designed to build on the foundations for learning established in years 7 and 8, and enable students to continue to make the best, most rapid progression in their learning.  The subjects they study build on their learning from Years 7 and 8 and prepare them more thoroughly for their option choices at the end of the year before embarking on their GCSE and BTEC courses.
