Students in years 7 and 8 receive one lesson of CS per week whilst those in year 9 receive two lessons.
All students in Years 7 - 9 follow the Key Stage 3 Programme of Study designed to meet the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. The Programme provides a balanced experience which allows all students, whatever their ability, to extend their knowledge, skill and understanding.
Students in Key Stage 4 receive 1 lesson of CS per week and follow a programme designed to meet the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum whereby students build on the topics studied in Key Stage 3, developing the self-awareness and confidence needed for adult life, further learning and work.
Students have opportunities to show that they can take responsibility for their own learning and career choices by setting personal targets and planning to meet them. They develop their ability to make informed choices affecting their health and well being. They develop an understanding and respect for the views, needs and rights of people of all ages and backgrounds and gain greater knowledge and understanding of spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues through increased moral reasoning, clarifying their opinion and attitudes in discussions with their peers and informed adults and considering the consequences of their decisions. They learn to understand and value relationships with a wide range of people and gain the knowledge and skills to seek advice about these and other personal issues.
