Core (5 hours per subject): Mathematics, English Literature and Language, sciences

Our specialism is also enhanced by a focused projects team that works with internal and external projects. It is an expectation that learners will be involved with some extra curricular projects and clubs.
PSHE/Life Skills and PE are 1 each hour per week.
It is a requirement that students have a PE offer throughout Key Stage 4 in schools, set by the Government and Department for Education. This offer must include; Ensuring that students are taught a range of team and individual games e.g. Basketball, Cricket, Football, Hockey and Netball and are able to develop their technical and performance skills in sport such as Trampolining, Athletics, Gymnastics and Swimming. Students are to be encouraged to work in a team, build on trust and develop skills to solve problems, either individually or as a group. To develop the ability to analyse their performances, compare against previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best; when taking part in competitive sports and activities.
Life Skills is driven the the students needs, this may be responding to news and local issues, or it may be a more practical look at life skills that are needed to live a full and meaningful life.
