We offer a broad and balanced curriculum which ensures every student experiences a breadth of knowledge and deeper learning of context and foundational skills before embarking on their examined programme of studies.

Reading and writing are at the heart of our curriculum and key skills in literacy, numeracy and ICT are the responsibility of all staff across our academy. Students are placed in mixed ability mentor groups and are sometimes set for subjects. Students can move up or down in sets as determined by their regular assessments and therefore aptitude for the rigour and challenge of each class.
