In the Secondary Phase (Year 7-11) students extend their academic progress in the core subjects of English and Maths. Business and Science will also be compulsory within a broader curriculum that offers two pathways to GCSE: Humanities and Modern Foreign Language or Science and Technology. Learning is enhanced by extended Projects tackling real life business, industry and public service case studies, with support from external mentors. We are developing entrepreneurial skills in our students through working closely with local, national and international businesses. Our current students are making good progress, Year 9’s are on a trajectory that will see at least 85% of them achieve 5 good GCSE grades including English and Maths.

Paragon Curriculum

At the heart of both Primary and Key Stage 3 curricula is Paragon, an innovative teaching and learning programme that integrates Humanities with Technology to create a hands-on learning experience for every student. Paragon takes children on a year-long journey through history, but each different Year Group studies a different geographic place in the world. This is done in termly units based on an essential question that can address skills and content knowledge appropriate for different Year Groups. Paragon provides children with the tools to question themselves and their world. It teaches them to think critically, to articulate their ideas verbally and in writing, and to work proficiently with technology. It is an education that provides children with the knowledge and skills necessary to choose any direction in life.
