Our intake of 150 pupils will be divided into six mixed ability tutor groups of 25, and will initially be taught in these groups for all subjects.
After the first term, pupils will start to be set by ability for Maths, English, Science and modern languages, and as they advance through the school this setting will be implemented for other key subjects, allowing teachers to stretch the most able and give extra support to those that need it in smaller groups.
Whilst we will ensure that our curriculum is broad and balanced, we will dedicate 25% of our teaching time in Year 7 to our specialist subjects of English and Maths, so that all our pupils have the reading and writing skills that will support their studies throughout their time at school.
Key Stage 3 subjects:
- Computing & ICT
- Design & Technology
- Modern languages (two from Spanish, French and Mandarin)
