Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Year 7 and 8

In Year 7 our students follow the National Curriculum learning programmes in English, Maths, Science, French or Spanish, Drama, ICT, Music and Physical Education. The rest of the curriculum is delivered through our unique iLearn programme which is an integrated skills based course built on the development of students’ personal learning and thinking skills. The Humanities through the iLearn Global programme, and Art and Technology through the iLearn Create programme. Personal, Social and Health Education and Information Communication Technology underpin both aspects of the iLearn programme.

In Year 8 our students follow National Curriculum learning programmes in English, Maths, Science, ICT, Music and Physical Education. We build on the Year 6 and 7 programme introducing separate subjects in the Humanities, Arts and Technology to enable our students to develop their specialist skills and knowledge in these areas and support course choices for Year 9.

We believe developing students’ literacy skills will help them access the curriculum in Phases 3 and 4. We offer an Accelerated Reading Programme to all students in year 7 to 8.
