On arrival at the Academy students are placed in one of our 3 pathways; Roseberry, Carlton & Sutton based on their prior attainment at KS2. This is reviewed at each assessment point during Year 7 to ensure that students are in the correct pathway.
Students in Year 7 all follow a core curriculum of 11 subjects.
- Life Skills
- Expressive Arts (Art & Music)
- Design Technology
The Year 7 Sutton pathway spend some time in a Nurture Group during which they will have additional literacy and numeracy support as well as covering a humanities curriculum.
The timetable is divided into 25 periods each week and the numbers of hours for each subject area is shown in the table opposite. At present we operate a 2 week timetable so the exact split of lessons may vary slightly between weeks A & B. Please click here to view the timetables.
In Years 8 & 9 students follow a very similar curriculum model. In Year 9 students choose to study either History or Geography. Students make other choices for their options during the spring term of Year 9.
