Years 7-9

Our Year 7-9 curriculum is diverse and challenging. It seeks to embed the skills, knowledge and understanding that learners need for GCSE while also remaining creative and engaging so that students enjoy their lessons and ultimately progress.

In Years 7-9, students complete their class work in an exercise book and their assessments in another designated exercise book. We complete two assessments per term focused on reading and writing skills to allow us to accurately track learners’ progress and ascertain where they need additional support or challenge.
