Curriculum Overview

Our aim is to offer a broad and balanced curriculum accessible to all students that develops the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes which are necessary for each student to achieve their full potential. The curriculum prepares students for further study, employment and adult life. The curriculum aims to enable all students to

  • achieve the very best standards in all subject areas;
  • develop skills which help prepare them for life; and
  • live good Christian lives. 

We take every opportunity to ensure all students, regardless of ability, make the best progress possible and achieve the highest possible standards in subjects and qualifications. We strive to narrow the gaps in achievement and enable those not achieving age-related expectations to catch up with their peers. Our SENCo works closely with all departments, in order to support students so that they all have access to the curriculum. The school challenges more able and talented students so that they achieve their full potential and their progress is sustained and enhanced. We make certain that all young people develop the skills and abilities needed for success in life and can apply them in a wide range of contexts.

Teaching groups vary in nature but generally there are mixed ability classes on admission in Year 7. A process of setting, determined by each department, takes place as students move through the school. Some setting takes place in Year 7 with further extensions to setting in Years 8- 11. 

Curriculum Organisation

We deliver the National Curriculum at key stage 3 and 4 and fulfil the requirements of the Learning and Skills (Wales) Measure 2009.

At key stage 3 (Years 7 - 9) the school curriculum consists of

  • Core subjects: English, Welsh, mathematics, science and religious education;
  • Non-core subjects: Modern foreign languages, design technology, ICT, history, geography, art, music, drama, physical education, PSE (including sex education) and careers and the world of work.

At key stage 4 (Years 10 - 11) the school curriculum consists of

  • Compulsory subjects: English language and English literature, Welsh second language, mathematics: numeracy, mathematics, science, religious education, physical education and Welsh Baccalaureate;
  • PSE (including sex education) and careers and the world of work; and
  • A broad range of academic and vocational courses leading to external qualifications (based on demand). 

At key stage 5 (Sixth Form) the school curriculum consists of

  • A broad range of courses leading to external qualifications; and
  • All students follow the Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification (WBQ).

In order to maximise the curriculum opportunities available at key stage 4 and 5 we work in collaboration with a number of schools in the local area and within our faith partnership to better support our students.
