programme of study

Each subject programme of study will:

  • Provide a clear and coherent learning journey
  • Foster subject-based understanding of new knowledge, concepts and methods
  • Ensure students acquire knowledge and give opportunities for recall and application of this knowledge so that fluency is developed
  • Require students to think and reason for themselves
  • Explanations and resources enable students to engage with and master learning
  • Learning should develop a depth of understanding that brings richness to the subject but also a breadth of understanding that enriches wider life and learning
  • Develop a readiness for the next stage: be this the next lesson, the next unit of work, the next year or key stage; it prepares students for both academic, A Level, and future degree study, or vocational learning
  • Contain appropriate, regular and robust assessment methods for measuring student progress and to allow intervention where progress is not as expected.

In order to see an overview of the sequence and progression of learning in Business Studies please see their Programme of Study.

INTRODUCTION

We offer an extensive curriculum, which tries to offer all pupils the opportunity to experience a range of activities.

At KS3, pupils in Year 7 have three 1 hour lessons, Year 8 & 9 have two 1 hour lessons.  In KS4, non GCSE pupils in Years 10 and 11 have two hours.  Pupils can also opt to study GCSE PE at KS4.  A wide range of extra curricular clubs and fixtures are offered throughout the year.

 

KEY STAGE 3

At KS3, students experience a range of activities which develop their knowledge and understanding in team and individual areas. Units are studied for between 6-8 weeks, allowing for assessment to take place at the end of the programme of study. Team games include Football, Rugby, Netball, Hockey and Handball. Individual areas such as Short Tennis, Athletics, Orienteering and Badminton are also covered.

All students in Year 8 and 9 study a Sports leaders unit, which prepares pupils for leadership opportunities, and the option of studying for the level 2 award at KS4.

JSLA (Junior Sports Leaders Award) – Level 2

This award will help pupils to develop many different Leadership skills.  These include being able to organise others and to communicate with groups and individuals in a sports setting.  Local Primary Schools are used for pupils to gain experience in leading and organising sporting activities.  A log book will be given to each pupil participating for them to record their experiences in.

 

Health Warning!

These courses are not all about practical work.  The theory content for these courses is challenging and will be the same workload as any other GCSE/BTEC subject.  You will be expected to attend at least ONE extra-curricular club a week.
